Sheriff appeals to citizens to join the VSI

In response to the need for improved, widespread public safety awareness and to assist local sheriffs in protecting the lives and property of citizens throughout Virginia, Sheriff C.O. Balderson announced a campaign that encourages Westmoreland County residents to become Associate Members of the Virginia Sheriffs’ Institute (VSI).    
Membership appeals will be mailed the week of Feb. 18. Individuals choosing to join the voluntary program can do so for as little as $20, while businesses can show their support with a $40 contribution.

The tax-deductible contributions will assist VSI’s ability to provide support for families of deputies or sheriffs killed in the line of duty, in an effort to relieve personal and community distress relating to such incidents.

In addition, VSI provides essential programs to improve the training of law enforcement officers, public safety and crime prevention outreach, and desperately needed scholarships to Virginia students to pursue Criminal Justice degrees.

“Considering the persistent economic crisis, our associate membership drive has taken on greater importance than ever before. The funding is vital to helping us carry out our mission of making our communities safer places to live, work and raise a family,” Balderson said.

Residents wishing to become an Associate Member can sign up for the program online at www.vasheriffsinstitute.org.
