Loudoun County, VA (May 4, 2022) - The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) was officially presented with the agency’s sixth re-accreditation this week and once again achieved a perfect accreditation from the Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC).

The LCSO received 100% compliance by VLEPSC, and the assessment received zero returns for the re-accreditation.

The VLEPSC assessment team leader, Lt. Tim Brown, noted in the final report “the professionalism and training of the men and women of the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office is second to none”. 

In December 2020, a team of three assessors from VLEPSC spent three days at the Loudoun Sheriff's Office thoroughly reviewing 190 standards and over 570 subsections. The standards cover all aspects of the agency to include patrol, administrative and special operation functions, court security, civil process, criminal investigations, and budget. As part of the review of the electronic management system, Lt. Brown also noted “the way the electronic files are set up in PowerDMS was the best I have ever seen.”

“The efficiency and effectiveness of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office recognized by this assessment is a testament to the great work being done every day by the men and women of the LCSO,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. 

The LCSO was first accredited in 1999 and is one of 104 state accredited agencies in Virginia and has been called a model agency for accreditation in the Commonwealth. 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.
