Loudoun Sheriff’s deputies serving western Loudoun have a new place to call home following the Oct. 22 dedication of the Western Loudoun Sheriff’s Station located in Round Hill.
“Much like the landscape of western Loudoun, there were a lot of ups and downs with this project,” said Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman during his ceremonial ribbon-cutting remarks. “We wanted to make sure that western Loudoun residents had the same level of services as those in the eastern Loudoun, Dulles South and Ashburn.”
The Western Loudoun Station, located at 47 W. Loudoun Street, will provide public safety services to the community and reduce travel time for deputies to and from the Loudoun County Sheriff Office (LCSO) headquarters on Sycolin Road near the Leesburg Airpark. The station also offers a community room available for public use by local non-profits.
The dedication ceremony featured the presentation of colors by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard and a rendition of the National Anthem by Deputy First Class Joshua Brumbaugh.
The Round Hill site is the third of four planned sub-stations for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. The first county-owned station in 2007, and the Dulles South Public Safety Center combines fire-rescue and law enforcement services. The Eastern Loudoun Station opened in 2010 and was the agency’s first stand-alone station. A fourth station in area of One Loudoun in Ashburn is next.
The station’s original design in 2012 met opposition from some on the Board of Supervisors, with the following re-designs for a smaller station and subsequent logistical issues delaying construction.
“There were a whole lot nuances along the way that didn’t make it an easy ride, but we finally got it through and we’re happy that we have this station and I think it’s going to service the people of western Loudoun very well,” Chapman said.
