Bio: Captain Sisk, a Culpeper native, graduated from Culpeper County High School in 1990. He began his life-long career in law enforcement in 1994. He began as a jail deputy under then-Sheriff Robert Peters, advanced to Patrol, and later to Criminal Investigations. He was instrumental in the first SWAT team in Culpeper County and served on it from 1999-2004. In 2004, he served in the Culpeper Police Department, where he also was a member of the first CPD SWAT team from 2004-2005.

In 2008 he moved to the Rappahannock County Sheriff's Office, where he worked Patrol and Criminal Investigations.

In 2012, he returned to his home county where he served with honor and distinction until his death. At his death, Captain Sisk was the commander of the Culpeper County Sheriff's Office Patrol Division, and also supervised Civil Process operations. Prior to that, Captain Sisk's duties included Lieutenant in Charge of the Court Division and Lieutenant in Charge of Patrol.

His career was marked by continual education and advancement in law enforcement. He was well known as a veteran instructor in firearm usage being both knowledgeable and proficient in the field. In 2019, Captain Sisk was honored with a lifetime achievement award from the Culpeper Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Task Force for his work in support of crime victims. Captain Sisk was a Master Mason since 1996 of the Fairfax Lodge 43 AF and AM.

His life is marked by his service to others, his larger-than-life personality, and his love for the Lord. He was an avid long-range shooter who loved nothing more than to teach someone else how to shoot. His spare time was spent with his friends and family pursuing that shared passion. He knew no stranger and was a mentor to many inside and outside of law enforcement.

Survived by:

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: VA   USA
Summary: Captain Tony Sisk died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 in the line of duty.


COVID-19, a flu-like virus, originated in Wuhan, China. Worth a mention, the Chinese Government had a biological research facility in that very province. At this point, it was widely held that COVID-19 was a bat-coronavirus and the first case was discovered in Wuhan in Oct. 2019.

On Dec. 31, 2019, Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, with an unknown cause. Jan 7, 2020 Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV).

Despite deaths and an entire Chinese Province(Hubei) quarantined by the Chinese Government, the World Health Organization(WHO) simply declares a global public-health emergency. Despite this serious understatement, on January 31st, President Trump bans foreign nationals from entering the US if they were in China within the prior two weeks. Despite a large public outcry of racism, this move likely saved 1000's of American lives, it would later be deemed.

After a full blown global infection, and an entire country being declared on 'Lockdown'(Italy), on March 11th, WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic. This same day, President Trump bans all travel from 26 European countries. On Mar. 13th, a US national emergency is declared over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

On Mar. 23rd, New York City confirms 21,000 cases, making it the biggest epicenter of the outbreak in the US. On Mar. 31, more than 1/3 of humanity is under some form of lockdown. On Apr. 2nd, the world passes one million COVID-19 infections.

On April 7th, roughly 95% of all Americans are under lockdown, as 42 states issue stay-at-home orders. The entire American economy has ground to a halt. Congress passed laws awarding trillions in grants, loans and other types of assistance to the American working population and businesses.
