Sheriff Crawford Named One of the Hometown Heroes for 2023
Sheriff Vanessa Crawford has served five terms as the Petersburg Sheriff and has instituted over 30 programs in Petersburg. This includes TRIAD, which works to reduce senior-targeted crimes in the area. She re-started drivers’ education courses in Petersburg schools, created a gun safety program for elementary school-aged children, delivers presentations on human trafficking and bullying, and much more.
She is also no stranger to fun, and recently took 50 seniors on a cross-country road trip that stopped in Chicago, Flagstaff, and Las Vegas. “My mom was my role model. As I grew up, I did not know I wanted to be like her, but I have become her clone. You listen to your calling, and you follow that. You go where you feel the call and do good work,” says Crawford.
