Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Unveils New Website

Innovative Website Improves Outreach & Communication as Part of Goal to Deliver Technology to Agency  

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office unveiled their new website this week. The website offers several innovative and interactive features in an effort to improve outreach and communication with the community. The improved website was one of Loudoun Sheriff Michael L. Chapman’s goals to deliver Service, Technology, Efficiency, and Professionalism (STEP-UP) to the agency.

The website, located at, now offers Loudoun County residents the ability to report certain types of crimes online and at their convenience. The reportable online crime types include larceny from vehicles, identity theft, and vandalism. The online crime reporting system should not be used in cases where it is an emergency or if the crime is in progress or just occurred.

Future enhancements to the website will include a traffic incident mapping page using online mapping resources. The current page lists real-time information on traffic-related incidents dispatched by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Communications Center. The future site will also include traffic-related incidents worked by the Loudoun County Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management. The page will be further developed to aide residents with their daily commutes. 

Residents are also able to use a searchable mapping system to locate their nearest Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Station. This will enable residents to find the closest station that provides services such as fingerprinting, background checks or where they can obtain copies of accident reports. The mapping system also helps residents locate the station area and service sector in which they live, enabling users to better understand crime data released by the agency in daily and quarterly reports.
