We believe that "Fighting crime is every citizens business!" We have made this our motto. The Commission plays a special role within the Loudoun County community by supporting law enforcement and other organizations with anti-crime initiatives through its community based support. This support includes enhancing direct communications between citizens and law enforcement through social networking programs, luncheons, and other events with law enforcement, business, citizens, media and government agency involvement. The LCC also provides direct and indirect support to police agencies that include material and financial assistance for education, training and equipment (on a case by case basis). By linking these disparate groups together with a single focus of fighting crime, we can make a positive difference in the communication level between these groups and in understanding how to work together better in Loudoun County. In all activities, the Loudoun Crime Commission shall remain politically neutral, neither supporting nor disparaging any political party.

Thank you to Bill Woolf, Executive Director of Just Ask Prevention, for a very informative and eye-opening presentation tonight on human trafficking held at Purcellville Town Hall. We learned that every 30 seconds a child or teen is sold into slavery in the US, with over 100,000 children exploited every year in America. Sadly, human trafficking is the 2nd largest criminal enterprise in the world. If you would like to learn more information about this horrific crime, and how to prevent and protect children, not only in our community, but those throughout the country, please visit their website at justaskprevention.org.

Members and friends of the Loudoun Crime Commission,

Greetings! We hope you have enjoyed your summer!

On behalf of Chairman Rich Claar, Acting Chairman Lloyd Reese and the Directors, thank you for your continued support of the LCC and our work to educate the community, and to maintain a connection between the public and Law Enforcement.

You are invited to attend our September 2019 Luncheon. This luncheon event will be on Friday, September 13, 2019, at the Belmont Country Club. Doors will open for gathering and socializing at noon and lunch will be served at 1230 pm.

We hope all LCC members will attend and invite their friends to hear another great speaker and to meet and interact with Loudoun's law enforcement officials, business and educational leaders and fellow citizens to gain insight into, and participate in, high level dialogue regarding crime issues in our fast growing locality.

We will have a speaker from the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force squad charged with the detection and disruption of Homegrown Violent Extremists in Northern Virginia. This should be an interesting presentation (but that can be said of them all!)

About our speaker: Morgan Bailey

Special Agent Bailey entered the FBI in 2008 after serving as a collegiate coach for approximately 12 years. Upon entering the FBI, he was assigned to the San Diego field office where he investigated public corruption, financial crime, human intelligence, and counterterrorism. In 2015 Agent Bailey took a supervisory role in the Counterterrorism Division where he managed counterterrorism cases run by the Washington Field Office. In 2016 he was promoted to Unit Chief in the Directorate of Intelligence in Washington DC. Most recently he was assigned as a field supervisor in the Washington DC Field Office where he supervised the National Capital Response Squad and currently supervises a squad which investigates Homegrown Violent Extremism in Northern Virginia.
Agent Baily will be speaking about trends with Homegrown Violent Extremists and Domestic Terrorism across the US and will also address the composition of our local Joint Terrorism Task Force while recognizing our strong partnership with other local, state and federal agencies and community and religious organizations.

To attend, please send an RSVP by September 10, 2019 to: [email protected]

About our speaker:

Meet the Special Agent in Charge...

Ashan M. Benedict began serving as the Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in January 2019. He is responsible for ATF operations throughout Washington, D.C., the State of Virginia and the Northern District of West Virginia.

Mr. Benedict previously served as the Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Division from October 2016 to January 2019 where he was responsible for ATF operations throughout the entire State of New York. Mr. Benedict is a member of the Senior Executive Service (SES).
ATF is a key law enforcement agency within the U. S. Department of Justice that protects our communities from violent criminals, criminal organizations, the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, the illegal use and storage of explosives, acts of arson and bombings, acts of terrorism, and the illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products. The men and women of ATF perform the dual responsibilities of enforcing Federal criminal laws and regulating the firearms and explosives industries to protect against crime, violence, and other threats to public safety.

Mr. Benedict, a 24-year federal law enforcement veteran, has served ATF in several major posts of duty that include New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Baltimore Field Divisions. He began his ATF career in 1998 as a special agent assigned to ATF’s High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force in Washington, D.C. As a street agent he investigated violent drug trafficking organizations, armed robberies of commercial businesses, armed carjacking, gang-related racketeering murder and firearms trafficking offenses. He also served over 3 years as a tactical operator on ATF’s Special Response Team (SRT) assigned to the teams in Los Angeles, CA and Washington, D.C.

Mr. Benedict was promoted in 2007 and served for over 4 years as a resident agent in charge (RAC) in the Washington Field Division, prior to his promotion in 2011 to Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC). He served for over 2 years as an ASAC in the Baltimore and Los Angeles Field Divisions. Mr. Benedict served for over 4 years in ATF National Headquarters (HQ) assignments, conducted over two tours. He held HQ leadership positions in the Special Operations Division (SOD), Office of Public and Governmental Affairs (PGA) and the Office of Professional Responsibility and Security Operations (OPRSO). Mr. Benedict began his law enforcement career in 1995 as a special agent with the U.S. Treasury Department’s IRS – Criminal Investigation Division, stationed in the Los Angeles and New York Field Offices.

Mr. Benedict was involved in ATF’s response and investigation of several notable events and incidents, including the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the Pentagon; the Beltway Sniper investigation; ATF’s response and support to New Orleans, LA after Hurricane Katrina; the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard active shooter; the San Bernardino, CA, mass shooting terrorist attack in December 2015 and the mass mailing of pipe bombs in New York City in October 2018.

Mr. Benedict is a New York City native and grew up in the Bronx and Yonkers. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Fordham University. In 2017, Mr. Benedict received the Federal Drug Agent Foundation’s (FDAF) Lifetime Achievement Award. He and his wife, ATF Special Agent Katherine Benedict, have three children.

We look forward to seeing you this Friday.

Thank you,

Frank Holtz
