About Sheriff Wes Tripp

I have been serving the citizens of Halifax County for the past 36 years, starting in 1984 as a jailer and working and supervising every position within the Sheriff’s Office. I was appointed Sheriff in August of 2013 to fill the unexpired term of retired Sheriff Jeff Frazier then later elected to the office in November 2014.

I have a positive working relationship with our court system and other law enforcement agencies surrounding the Roanoke Valley. These relationships are paramount because “Working Together Works!”
