[ARCHIVED] LCSO Receives Two National Achievement Awards

NACo 1

Loudoun County, VA (July 12, 2021) - The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office was honored to be recognized by the National Association of Counties (NACo), receiving two 2021 Achievement Awards.  These awards honor innovative and effective county programs that strengthen services for residents.  

 The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office received Achievement Awards in the Criminal Justice and Public Safety category for the Prescription Delivery and the Intersection Crash Reduction Programs.  

Intersection Crash Reduction
In 2020, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office created a traffic safety initiative to reduce the number of crashes at intersections within the county. The central focus was to increase traffic safety and educate residents about the dangers of distracted driving and other behaviors that can lead to crashes. As a result, LCSO reported a 50% drop in crashes at several of the most crash-prone intersections in the county and a 35% drop in total crashes in the county. The program included a partnership with the Virginia State Police and the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Prescription Delivery Program
To help the county’s senior residents and those who are more vulnerable to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office created a no-cost prescription pick-up and delivery assistance program. Interested residents contacted the Sheriff’s Office to request the service and notify their pharmacy that a uniformed Sheriff's deputy would pick up the prescription. The deputy delivered the medication, allowing the residents to stay home and stay safe.  This program continues today, with Deputies having safely delivered over 300 prescriptions to county residents.  

 “I am proud of the work that the members of this agency do on a daily basis and to be recognized on a national level,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman.  “These achievement awards are a testament to our dedication and commitment to the residents of Loudoun County.”

 NACo awards are given each year in eighteen different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide.  The National Association of Counties (NACo) strengthens America’s counties, including nearly 40,000 county elected officials and 3.6 million county employees. Founded in 1935, NACo unites county officials to advocate for county government priorities in federal policymaking; promote exemplary county policies and practices; nurture leadership skills and expand knowledge networks; optimize county and taxpayer resources and cost savings; and enrich the public’s understanding of county government. www.naco.org
