The Virginia Law Enforcement Sheriffs (“VLES”) represent the interests of the 86 sheriff’s offices providing the primary law enforcement in their communities. VLES’s found principal is to advocate in favor of providing their deputies a livable wage. Their inaugural legislative reception was a grand slam, with attendees including the Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of Public Safety, and too many legislators to count.

Here are a few pictures of the VLES members who were able to take part in the reception day.
