The Sheriff’s Office yielded over 122 positive results through the implementation of the Step-up law enforcement strategy, implementing goals and enacting strategies. View all of our achievement over the past three years HERE. Here are just a few highlights.

Loudoun residents received improved public safety services through new and stronger community outreach programs such as Child Safety Day, Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program expansion to middle schools, and the award winning Internet Safety education program. The Sheriff’s Office has reduced the crime rate by 18 percent with a re-focused drug enforcement priority, which includes heroin, and synthetic and prescription drugs. Furthermore, Loudoun citizens will receive enhanced service through a new computer aided dispatch system (CAD/RMS) with dispatchers soon entering into the training phase of the project.

The Loudoun Sheriff’s Office implemented new overtime controls through employing a smart threat matrix to significantly reduce [wasteful overtime draining] SWAT call-outs, all-hands calls, adjusting deputy work schedules to reduce overtime usage, and continuing the successful online reporting of incidents which saved $175,000.

FY 2014 was a year full of accolades for the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s Office personnel received numerous awards including; Virginia Sheriff’s Association Deputy of the Year, Crisis Intervention Deputy of the Year, Friends of Loudoun Mental Health Leadership Award, MADD Excellence in Community Service Award, Virginia DARE Officer of the Year, Region III Director of the National Information Officer’s Association, the Virginia Governor’s Transportation Youth Safety Award in partnership with LCPS for No Texting and Driving Campaign, and the Adult Detention Center received 100% compliance from the Commonwealth of Virginia Board of Corrections for minimum standards for jails and lock-ups.
