A correctional officer with the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail suffered a fatal heart attack following a shakedown in one of the housing units at the facility over the weekend.
"Major Angelanette Moore was an admired and respected member of the VPRJ family," the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office said on Facebook. "Major Moore was 100% dedicated to her chosen career in corrections. She genuinely enjoyed her work, and was committed to training and developing her junior officers. Major Moore's presence was that of a strict but always fair professional. Major Moore was dedicated to this Agency and the respectful and proper care of those committed to custody."
The social media post concluded, "Our thoughts and prayers remain with Major Moore's family during this tragic time, and we will continue to provide them with assistance as they grieve her loss."
Major Moore is survived by her husband and son.
