Virginia Law Enforcement Sheriffs

“Working together to provide a livable wage for Law Enforcement Deputies.”

The Virginia Law Enforcement Sheriffs (VLES) was formed with this primary goal in mind.


The Issue

Law Enforcement Sheriffs answer dangerous calls around the clock, often alone, involving dangerous felons with firearms, domestic disputes, and dangerous crimes in progress.

In spite of this, the starting salary for deputy sheriffs is below the livable wage of $31,629.


Our Goal

The primary goal of VLES is to persuade the General Assembly to provide a 10% salary regrade for all Law Enforcement Deputies and require localities to provide a 20% salary supplement.

Our Partners

VLES has retained Steve Baril, John “Lynwood” Butner, and Dylan Bishop of KVCF Solutions to help achieve this goal.
