Mike Chapman was elected Sheriff, Loudoun County, VA in 2011 and took office January 2012. He directs operations for the largest full-service office in the State of Virginia which handles county-wide law enforcement, the jail and our courts. The Sheriff’s Office employs approximately 750; 600 sworn deputies and 150 civilian personnel. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office serves a population of 350,000 and an area of 519 square miles.

During his three years in office, Sheriff Chapman expanded the Drug Abuse
Resistance Education (DARE) to include both Elementary and Middle Schools,
established a Cold Case squad; enhanced media outreach through integrated
technology and a restructured website; introduced on-line reporting;
professionalized the Human Resources and hiring processes; and improved training,
accountability and efficiency. Sheriff Chapman also initiated a county-wide internet
safety training program for parents (which has now been expanded to middle and high school students); added prescription and synthetic drug awareness with assistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA); partnered with county schools for “No-Texting and Driving” campaign; helped integrate mental health services, and initiated Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training for deputies and dispatchers. 

Joining with Sheriff Chapman in this discussion will be Mr. Phillip Thompson who is the current president of the Loundoun County chapter of the NAACP and he will provide the citizens perspective on issues associated with public safety and the impact it is having on the community.
