We are proud to announce that Master Detective Benjamin P. Woodson recently received the Crime Scene Investigator of the Year Award from the Virginia Forensic Science Academy Alumni Association (VFSAAA). Master Detective Woodson was selected for this award from a group of his peers from throughout the Commonwealth who have excelled in the field of crime scene technology.

Master Detective Woodson has been a dedicated member of the Stafford Sheriff’s Office for over 13 years and has served as the full-time Crime Scene Technician since 2011. In that time, he has completed extensive specialized training, processed over 700 crime scenes, conducted 560 forensic consults, and examined over 450 cell phones. He also helped create the Crime Scene Technician program at the Sheriff’s Office. This program has since been adopted by numerous neighboring jurisdictions.

Even with a full workload, Master Detective Woodson consistently mentors deputies and detectives in his field of expertise and teaches at the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy. He also devotes countless hours to the community by sharing his passion for forensics at events and for programs such as DARE Day, Junior Deputy Academy, National Night Out, Citizens Police Academy, and the Rappahannock Domestic Violence Council.

Please join Sheriff Decatur and all of us at the Stafford Sheriff’s Office in congratulating Master Detective Woodson on this incredible accomplishment.
