Sheriff Announces 32nd Citizens' Police Academy


Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman announced today the formation of the 32nd Citizens' Police Academy, which will commence on March 13, 2013.

Over 100 Sterling Residents have attended these Academies and some of the most devoted civic minded Sterling Americans sign up for the training.


Members of the class will participate in training classes taught by Loudoun County Sheriff's Office personnel. The classes provide an overview of all the aspects of law enforcement within the agency. Members of the class may also have the option of participating in a ride-a-long with a deputy after completing the academy.

The free sessions will be held each Wednesday evening from March 13th through May 22nd. Each session will be two-and-a-half hours in length and begin at 7PM. Class locations will be announced prior to the upcoming session.

The classes are open to Loudoun County residents over the age of 18. To enroll in the Citizen's Police Academy, please contact Karen Lauzier at the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at (703) 737-8238, during normal business hours of 9AM to 5PM.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Enrollment is limited to 40 participants.

This is the first of two Citizens' Police Academies held by the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office this year. The next session will be held in the fall of 2013.
