Courtroom Security / Courthouse Security / Prisoner Transportation / Concealed Weapon Permits / Project Lifesaver
Led by Lt. Tom Fairchild
This function is responsible for:
- Providing bailiffs to the court
- Moving prisoners to and from the courts
- Operating metal detectors and other security devices as required
- Being present in court at all times when courts are in session
- Ensuring that a full-time deputy is placed at the courthouse entrance to scan all individuals entering for weapons and other items not allowed in the courthouse

Concealed weapon permit applications must be investigated per the Code of Virginia. This function handles all the investigation and subsequent paperwork for the applicants as required to meet this Code.
Civil Process / Accreditation / Applicant Background Investigations
Led by Lt. Gerald Lacy
This function is responsible for:
- processing and serving all legal papers issued by courts and attorneys to citizens of Campbell County. As many of these processes can result in the “attachment” of personal property in order to satisfy debts as well as the legal “eviction” of tenants for landlords that have properly used the court process to effect the eviction, they are quite time-consuming. At times the personal property that has been “attached” must be sold at a Sheriff’s Auction to satisfy the debt owed. This function is responsible for the auction requirements.
- assisting with the accreditation efforts of the department. The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office is a state accredited agency through the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC). VLEPSC issues 187 professional standards that agencies must prove compliance with in order to maintain their accredited status. The Sheriff’s Office was originally accredited in 1999, and has passed successfully thereafter.
- performing and completing background investigations and testing processes for all applicants for employment with the Sheriff’s Office.
School Resource Officer Program
The primary mission of the School Resource Officer is to create a partnership between the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and the Campbell County Public Schools. This program is intended to maintain a safe learning environment for our youth, to identify and prevent criminal activity through counseling and referral of delinquent behavior, and to promote positive relationships between students and law enforcement officers.
Community Relations and Crime Prevention
Led by Sgt. Gary Penn
This is a relatively new function instituted by Sheriff Clark which is responsible for implementing and conducting crime prevention activities with the public. It administers the Neighborhood Watch Program.
In addition, Sgt. Penn conducts community relations functions to increase citizen awareness of the department’s operations.
