Complete Waste of Millions of Dollars: Western Sheriff Boondoggle Opened

October 22, 2016

Eugene Delgaudio said today "Loudoun County had ceremonies opening the Western Loudoun Sheriff's station. I voted no along with the district supervisor from that district due to the lack of need for a station in that part of the county.

This is in contrast to a station still not built in Ashburn (the bid was posted one year ago here https://www.loudoun.gov/bids.aspx?bidID=254) and should be opening next year. The Ashburn station would not have been rushed had I not been focused on where the crime actually occurs in Loudoun. And its no secret to the criminals that there is no station in Ashburn either." I have posted the full official ceremony statement from the county."

(A similar problem occured with the Sheriff's office (not the current office holder) when the South Dulles station was built years ahead of the Sterling station. There was no crime issues in South Dulles but widely reported crime issues in Sterling. Once this shortcoming in priorities was recognized, confronted and discussed publicly and resolved in Sterling's favor by a cooperative Board of Supervisors, Sterling got its own station to confront the crime problem years ago.)

Dedication Ceremony Held for the Western Loudoun Sheriff's Station

Loudoun County, VA- Loudoun Sheriff's Deputies who serve Western Loudoun have a new place to call home following today's dedication of the Western Loudoun Sheriff's Station located in Round Hill, Va.

A large crowd turned out to see the new facility first-hand and to take part in the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony. "Much like the landscape of Western Loudoun, rolling hills, there were a lot of ups and downs with this project," said Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman during his ceremonial remarks. "We wanted to make sure that Western Loudoun residents had the same level of services as those in Eastern Loudoun, Dulles South and Ashburn," Sheriff Chapman added.

The Western Loudoun Station will provide substantial public safety services to the community and reduce travel time for deputies to the Loudoun Sheriff's Office Headquarters in Leesburg. The station also offers a community room available for public use to local non-profit organizations.

The dedication ceremony featured the presentation of colors by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard and a stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Deputy First Class Joshua Brumbaugh.

The Western Loudoun Station is the third of four planned stations for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office opened their first county-owned station in 2007 in the Dulles South area. The Dulles South Public Safety Center serves as a combined fire-rescue station and law enforcement station. The Eastern Loudoun Station was opened in 2010 and was the agency's first stand-alone station. The Loudoun Sheriff's Office is in the construction phase of a fourth station located in the area of One Loudoun in Ashburn, Va.

Following the dedication ceremony members of the community took a self-guided tour of the new facility. The new Western Loudoun Station is located at 47 W. Loudoun Street. The dedication ceremony was heldOctober 22, 2016.
