Congratulations to our four Deputies that graduated from the 132nd Basic Law Enforcement Session on November 6, 2015!

Congratulations to the October 30th graduates of the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training. The 40 hour training enables officers to more effectively communicate with and understand the particular needs of individuals with mental illness. Graduates include officers and deputies from the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office, Harrisonburg Police Department, Bridgewater Police Department, Virginia State Police, James Madison University Police Department, and Rockingham County Fire & Rescue.

We had a great week at the Rockinigham County Fair!  Thanks to everyone who came out!





2015 Special Olympics Golf Tournament

On May 15, 2015 we held the annual Special Olympics Golf Tournament at Packsaddle Ridge Golf Club.  Thank you to all the sponsors and participants who made this year’s tournament a success.  All proceeds benefit the Virginia Special Olympics.

The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office is very pleased to announce that we have just obtained a Bloodhound canine that will be trained to serve our community with search and rescue tracking operations.

A breeder in North Carolina graciously donated a ten-week old Red Bloodhound to the Sheriff's Office and we picked it up this past weekend. The training process for "Lucy" has already begun and it is expected to take approximately eight months to be fully completed.
