Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputy Casey Johnson Recognized at 14th Annual WRAP Awards

Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy Casey Johnson was recognized last Friday, December 16, for his efforts in the fight against impaired driving at the 14th Annual Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) Awards.   

He was among several law enforcement officers from the region recognized by WRAP for their outstanding commitment in the fight against drunk driving.   

Johnson, a three-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office Field Operations Division, removed 18 impaired drivers from Loudoun’s roadways during the past year.  Johnson was also recognized in July after he pulled a 4-year-old Sterling, girl to safety after she climbed over the railing of a third story balcony. For those efforts Johnson received Patrol Deputy of the Month and a Meritorious Action Award.   

The annual WRAP Awards ceremony is part of a kick-off campaign for the Holiday SoberRide Program and also recognizes members of law enforcement for their efforts in impaired driving prevention. Founded in 1982, WRAP, is an award winning, public-private partnership working to prevent drunk driving and underage drinking in the Washington-metropolitan area.      

The Master of Ceremonies was News4’s Hakem Dermish, Fairfax County Police Chief Colonel David M. Rohrer served as co-host, and the featured speaker was the Honorable William C. Mims, Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court.
