 Loudoun County, VA (April 22, 2022) – Four members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office were recognized Thursday at the Virginia Sheriffs' Institute (VSI) Certification Program. 

The VSI Certification Program recognizes those Virginia sheriffs and deputies who continue individual professional development and a commitment to excellence, life-long learning, and advancement of public safety as a profession. 

Recognized from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) were Major Easton McDonald, 1st Lieutenant Paul Loconti, Sergeant Michael Safford, and Detective Matthew Bucco. 

Twenty-three members of the LCSO have received the certification since the inaugural class of the VSI Certification Program in 2018- the largest number of recipients from any one sheriff’s office in the Commonwealth of Virginia.   

“The fact that more members of the LCSO have been recognized through the VSI Certification Program than any other sheriff’s office in Virginia exemplifies the professionalism of the agency and our staff. It is also a testament to our leadership’s expectation for their professional service,” said Sheriff Chapman.

Each recipient of the certificate met specific requirements to include years of service, education, hours of training (career development), and professional development, including instruction in public safety training. 

The VSI Certification Program was developed by the Virginia Sheriffs’ Institute (VSI) in cooperation with the Virginia Sheriffs' Association (VSA), the Performance Management Group at the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) and the Virginia Center for Policing Innovation (VCPI).
