It is the responsibility of the Administration Division to perform the many tasks that keep the daily routines of the Sheriff’s Office functioning efficiently and effectively. The Administration Division has several areas within the Division that are necessary in order to maintain a fluent and seamless operational work flow within the organization. These areas include Accreditation, Training, Finance, Human Resources, Purchasing, Supply and Computer Systems Administration.
As with any organization reporting is a major function, and the Sheriff’s Office is no different. The Sheriff’s Office produces reports and documents associated with each department within the Division. Payroll must be handled every month, accounts must be balanced and monies tracked. Human Resources keeps track of qualifications of new applicants and training requirements of current appointees. The Purchasing and Supply section ensures that all necessary and needed equipment is available. The Computer Systems Administrator maintains the computers for the agency and assists in evaluation of new technology, along with maintaining the agency website. The Administrative Division supervises the re-certification and training of all employees, and also ensures that the departmental employees are in compliance with Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC).
