Newport News, VA- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was awarded reaccreditation by the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC) today before a panel of top Virginia law enforcement officials (appointed Sheriffs and Police Chiefs).


In December 2016, a team of three assessors from the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC) spent three days at the Loudoun Sheriff's Office thoroughly reviewing 190 standards. The standards cover all aspects of the agency to include patrol, administrative and special operation functions, court security, civil process, criminal investigations, and budget.


“The award of accreditation is a testament to the efficiency and effectiveness of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the men and women who serve the community,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. “The hard work, achievements, and professionalism of our employees are well recognized with this award,” Sheriff Chapman added.  


The LCSO was first accredited in 1999 and is one of 96 state accredited agencies in Virginia that is recognized by the commission. Agencies wishing to retain accredited status must complete the accreditation process every four years. During the four-year period, the agency must submit annual reports attesting to the continued compliance with accreditation standards. 


Verification by the team of assessors that the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office meets the standards of VLEPSC is part of a voluntary process to gain accreditation. A presentation of the accreditation team’s findings was made to the Executive Board of the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Accreditation Commission in Newport News, Va., on January 5. VALEC members made the findings official with a formal vote.
