Alleghany County Sheriff Kevin Hall has been unanimously selected to serve as the first vice president of the Virginia Sheriff’s Association.
The Sheriff’s Association met Sept. 16 in Chesapeake for its annual meeting. Some sheriffs attended the meeting in person, while others participated online.
Hall, who has served as sheriff since January 2008, will serve for one year and represent 8,500 sheriffs, deputy sheriffs and other personnel across the commonwealth.
“I am truly honored to be elected to this position and look forward to working for all of our 8,500 members in the upcoming year,” Hall said.
Next year, he is slated to become president of the organization. Next year’s meeting will be held in September at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center.
Before being elected Alleghany County Sheriff in 2007, Hall worked for 22 years at the Covington Police Department, where he was a patrol officer, patrol sargeant, DARE officer, narcotics detective, school resource officer and detective sargeant of criminal investigations.
The Virginian Review has been serving Covington, Clifton Forge, Alleghany County and Bath County since 1914.
