On Friday, June 28, 2019, Investigator Mitchell M. Wilson graduated from the 98th Session of Virginia Forensic Science Academy. This two-month rigorous academy provides students with the necessary background information and practical application techniques which, when coupled with the student’s previous experience, permit maximum utilization of forensic science in the apprehension and prosecution of criminals in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Investigator Wilson learned how to properly recognize, document, collect and preserve items of physical evidence found at crime scenes for laboratory examination.

From all of us here at the King & Queen County Sheriff’s Office, we are very proud of Investigator Wilson and his determination and commitment to furthering his education in the Criminal Justice field. Congratulations Investigator Wilson!

The King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce a new resource for the citizens of King and Queen County, Project Lifesaver. Over the past year, the King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office has been working to establish the Project Lifesaver Program, with the help of donations from local individuals and businesses. The King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office strives to bring peace of mind to all the citizens when their loved ones go missing.

Project Lifesaver was established in April of 1999 to assists those who care for Alzheimer’s Dementia, Autism, Down Syndrome and any other cognitive condition that causes an individual to wander. The Project Lifesaver Program provides personalized radio transmitters or GPS locators to those individual people that tend to wander. These transmitters assist caregivers and the King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office in locating those wandering individuals. Much of the time, wandering individuals are found within 30 minutes.

                                                     Do you know of someone who may need this service?

The King and Queen County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting applications!

This service is FREE of charge, but an application must be submitted to assess the need of the individual. To start the application process, contact Captain Balderson at (804)785-7400 to set up an appointment.

                                                                                Thank you!
