Leesburg Police Unveil New Badge

Leesburg, VA (December 30, 2021) – While the current Leesburg Police Department badge has been proudly worn by the women and men of the Leesburg Police Department for the past 25 years, the decision has been made to retire the design. Beginning January 1, 2022, members of the Leesburg Police Department will wear a new badge. This custom badge includes historical elements from our current badge while incorporating a new modern design. Those wearing an external vest will wear a similar custom high-definition embroidered badge patch.

“This new badge combines elements of our proud history, along with a modern and refined design reminiscent of badges used by some of the first professional and progressive police departments.” advised Leesburg Chief of Police Gregory Brown.

Leesburg Police Raise Money for Local Charity through No Shave November Campaign

Leesburg, VA (December 1, 2021) – Leesburg Police Officers, in collaboration with Inova Loudoun Hospital, once again participated in a cancer awareness campaign known as "No Shave November.” The purpose of the campaign is to bring awareness to patients that often lose their hair secondary to cancer treatment. During the month of November, participating members of the Leesburg Police Department were permitted to forego shaving for the month, in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Leesburg Police Department’s 2021 No Shave November campaign. With your support, we were able to raise more than $3,000.00 for the Cancer Patient Assistance Fund at Inova Loudoun Hospital. This fund supports the critical needs of cancer patients in Loudoun County, both during and after treatment, including assistance with bills, prescriptions, transportation, housing, and much more. Your charitable donations may help your neighbors, your friends, or possibly even your family members!

Officers and staff who chose to participate, each personally made a monetary donation and independently collected donations which have all been donated to the Cancer Patient Assistance Fund at Inova Loudoun Hospital. We would like to congratulate Officer Thompson, Officer Hachwi, and Officer Graves for each raising this year’s largest individual officer contributions to the fund in a three way tie! As a reward, these three officers have been granted permission to forgo shaving through the end of the year!

"It's not the police who need to be retrained, it's the public. We have grown into a mouthy, mobile phone wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of 'it's the other person's fault, you owe me'. A society where children grow up with no boundaries or knowledge or concern for civil society and personal responsibility.

When an officer says "Put your hands up," then put your hands up! Don't reach for something in your pocket, your lap, your seat. There's plenty of reason for a police officer to feel threatened, there have been multiple assaults and ambushes on police officers lately. Comply with requests from the officer, have your day in court. Don't mouth off, or fight, or refuse to comply... that escalates the situation.

Police officers are our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. They're black, white, brown, all colors, all ethnicities, all faiths, male and female, they are us. They see the worst side of humanity... the r***d children, the bloody mangled bodies of traffic victims, the bruised and battered victims of domestic violence, homicide victims, body parts... day after day.

They work holidays while we have festive meals with our families. They miss school events with their kids, birthdays, anniversaries, all those special occasions that we take for granted. They work in all types of weather, under dangerous conditions, for relatively low pay.

They have extensive training, but they are human. When there are numerous attacks on them, they become hyper vigilant for a reason, they have become targets. When a police officer encounters any person... any person, whether at a traffic stop, a street confrontation, an arrest, whatever... that situation has the potential to become life threatening. You, Mr & Mrs/Miss Civilian, also have the responsibility of keeping the situation from getting out of control.

Many law enforcement officers are Veterans. They've been in service to this nation most of their lives, whether on the battlefield or protecting us here at home. They are the only thing that stands between us and anarchy in the streets.

If you want to protect your child, teach them respect."

Members and Friends of the Loudoun Crime Commission – Greetings!

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 last luncheon for 2021: The LCC Luncheon event is at 1230 pm on Friday, November 12th, 2021, at the Belmont Country Club. Doors open at noon for gathering and socializing.

Our speaker is Commander Robert Glover, Washington Metropolitan Police Department, who will present:
“Inside the January 6th Capitol Riot”

Commander Robert Glover was the commander of MPD officers deployed to the scene of the January 6th event. He will describe his experience on that day. What it was like to call for backup 17 times, and to see multiple officers suffer injuries.

Robert Glover was appointed by then Acting Chief Contee III to the rank of Commander in January 2021, and currently heads the Special Operations Division (SOD) where he manages all special operations units. These include the Emergency Response Team, Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Harbor Patrol, Canine, Air Support, Horse Mounted, and Special Events.

Commander Glover began his career with MPD as a recruit in 1994. After four years, he was promoted to Sergeant. In 2000, he was promoted to Lieutenant and served in a number of posts at that rank.

In 2016, he was named Captain of the Special Events Branch and was promoted to Inspector in 2020. That year he oversaw the Presidential Inauguration planning and First Amendment Demonstrations.

Commander Glover graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1993 with a BS in Administration of Justice. He has numerous certificates and has received training from agencies such as the FBI and the US Secret Service.

We hope all LCC members will attend and invite their friends to take this opportunity to meet and interact with Loudoun's top law enforcement officials, and to gain some insight into crime issues in our fast-growing locality. We look forward to seeing you all there.

To attend, please send an RSVP by Tuesday, November 9th, 2021 to: [email protected]

Thank you,

Frank Holtz
Chairman, LCC

Did you know that all Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy recruits visit #LeesburgVA for a 1 day course on the #LPD’s successful methods of #CommunityPolicing? Today, the final class from this session toured Leesburg & learned about our community policing philosophies. Thank you Cornerstone Chapel for allowing us to once again use your facilities for this rewarding class!

A report has been received this week of a Loudoun County resident receiving a phone call where the caller impersonated a law enforcement official and asked for gift cards to clear an arrest warrant. The caller identified themselves as an officer with the Leesburg Police Department to help make the scam appear legitimate.

It is important to note that members of law enforcement will NEVER ASK for MONEY or PREPAID/GIFT CARDS in lieu of arrest.

If you have any questions as to the validity of a telephone call from any law enforcement agency, or have been a victim of this telephone scam, you are asked to call the LPD non-emergency dispatch line at 703-771-4500.

Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman joined Leesburg Police Department, Leesburg VA Chief Greg Brown, Middleburg Police Department Department Chief AJ Panebianco, Purcellville Police Department Deputy Chief Dave Dailey, and Virginia State Police Captain J-P. N. Koushel for the 9th Annual Loudoun Crime Commission State of Law Enforcement in #Loudoun County Forum. Sheriff Chapman highlighted the LCSO’s efforts to combat crime, including local, state and federal partnerships He noted that Loudoun County saw a 32% decrease in the county’s crime rate between 2012 and 2018. This reduction in crime continues despite the continued growth of Loudoun, which saw over 66-thousand new residents during the same time period. Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office reported the lowest crime rate in Northern Virginia according to the 2019 Annual Report on Crime and Crime Control released by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG). Loudoun also saw the second lowest crime rates in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Region Preliminary numbers indicate the continued decrease in serious crime, with Part 1 crimes decreasing 4% and violent crime down 8% in 2019 compared to 2018. This past year we initiated several public safety campaigns and programs to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents. As the safety of our schools is a top priority, we announced the availability of a free downloadable app called Safe2Talk. The app can be used by students, parents, teachers, and residents to anonymously report safety concerns in our schools so they can be immediately addressed. As news headlines broke regarding a surge in va**ng-related illnesses, we released an informational video in an effort to educate the public on the potential health concerns with these devices among our youth. The campaign included the continuation of a series of educational forums on va**ng with Loudoun County Public Schools throughout the county. After years of urging the Virginia General Assembly to amend the Improper Driving statute language, we successfully improved a serious gap in the Virginia Motor Code. By amending traffic ordinances at the local level, our deputies now have the discretion to issue a summons instead of Reckless Driving – a Class 1 misdemeanor - when investigating a minor crash. Previously, the charge of Reckless Driving could only be reduced to Improper Driving, a less serious charge, by a judge or at the request of the Commonwealth Attorney. The amendments relieve our deputies of the current state code constraints and provide drivers a much fairer legal recourse. Through the great work of our deputies and civilian staff, we continue to receive local, state and national recognition. This year, Deputy First Class Colin Whittington was named the Virginia Deputy Sheriff of the Year by the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association. He is the third LCSO deputy to receive this recognition in the past five years. Sheriff Chapman notes his work on several committees at the national level, including Vice-President of Homeland Security for the Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA), Chairman for Homeland Security for the National Sheriffs’ Association, and on the D.A.R.E. Executive Law Enforcement Advisory Board. There were also a number of firsts in 2019 for the LCSO: We were the first agency in Northern Virginia to receive training in Sources of Strength, an evidence-led youth su***de prevention program. The program is conducted by the Ryan Bartel Foundation founded by the Bartel family after their son’s tragic death by su***de at age 17 when he was a senior at Woodgrove High School in Purcellville. We also held the first-ever three-day Advanced Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) in the Commonwealth of Virginia in October. We have become a leader both regionally and nationally in CIT training with personnel from across the country and overseas traveling to participate in our training. The LCSO CIT program has trained over 600 personnel from the local, state, and federal levels. We continue to be overwhelmed by your generous support in several giving campaigns. This fall, we once-again participated in No-Shave November. Loudoun residents helped us raise over $24,000 for cancer research and prevention. We were the highest fundraising law enforcement agency as part of No-Shave.org. In the past three years, Loudoun residents have helped us raise over $55,000 for cancer research and prevention. Residents also helped us collect over 2500 toys for our annual Santa Ride for Cole’s Closet for children who are hospitalized during the holidays. This is the largest number of toys we have ever collected and the largest donation ever received by Cole’s Closet.
