Mission Statement

We, the professional men and women of the Salem Sheriff's Office, are empowered to defend the Constitution of the United States and Commonwealth of Virginia. Through courtesy, care, trust, and commitment, we will work diligently to provide the most effective and safe delivery of court services to our citizens.

The Salem City Sheriff's Office is responsible for courtroom security, transportation of prisoners and serving civil law processes.

 

JURY DUTY SCAM

We want to alert you about a reported telephone scam where callers are claiming to be law enforcement or IRS personnel.   The callers are advising citizens that they have failed to appear for jury duty or have a tax debt and are requesting money in order to dispel a warrant for your arrest.   They may ask for credit card or social security numbers, or request for you to purchase a money card.   DO NOT provide any personal information to these scammers.   Legitimate law enforcement personnel will never ask for money over the phone, nor threaten jail time over the phone.  

If you feel you have been a victim of this scam, please contact Salem Police Department (540) 375-3078.   If you would like to verify your status as a juror, you may contact the Salem Sheriff’s Office at (540) 375-3040.
