    Loudoun Sheriff’s Office unveils new headquarters

    Among those participating in the ribbon-cutting dedication for the new Loudoun Sheriff’s headquarters were, L-R, Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet, Commissioner of Revenue Bob Wertz, Sheriff Mike Chapman, Vice-Chairman Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Shawn Williams, Supervisor Suzanne Volpe, Supervisor Ken Reid, Del. Randy Minchew and State Sen. Jennifer Wexton. Times-Mirror/Rick Wasser
    The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office formally unveiled its new administrative headquarters April 29 at a ceremony and open house.

    Wet conditions forced the ceremony to the indoor conference room, but Sheriff Michael Chapman still reinforced the importance of having a new permanent facility for his department. Construction for the building, located at 803 Sycolin Road, began in 2012, and the facility opened last August.

    “I'm am truly proud of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office in every aspect for all they do,” Chapman said. “They continued to do excellent work even with dust flying around.”

    County Administrator Tim Hemstreet noted the ceremony was held on the same week in April when, in 1757, Fairfax County was divided to create Loudoun.
    Supervisor Shawn Williams (R-Broad Run) attended the ceremony to represent the Board of Supervisors.

    “Today's dedication is about a safe and efficient government that provides necessary services,” Williams told the crowd. “We have a safe community in Loudoun and that has to do with the services these men and women provide.”

    Williams, Chapman and Hemstreet were joined by County Commissioner Bob Wertz, supervisors Suzanne Volpe and Ken Reid, state Sen. Jennifer Wexton and Del. Randy Minchew in cutting the ribbon, though the original ribbon was accidentally snapped while being unraveled.

    The ceremony was highlighted by the presentation of the first ever Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Leadership Award to Ken Falke. In September, Falke formally opened Boulder Crest Retreat, a 37 acre property dedicated to military and veteran wellness in Bluemont.

    Falke noted that in addition to helping veterans, the facility also helps businesses in the area.

    “It's more than just a charity, but at the same time, the healing going on is amazing,” Falke said.
