LCSO Eastern Loudoun Station to Hold Second Annual Open House
Loudoun County, VA: The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Eastern Loudoun Station will hold its second annual open-house on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 11AM to 3PM.
Residents are encouraged to attend and meet Sheriff Mike Chapman and members of the Eastern Station staff, take a guided tour of the facility, and view Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office displays. Light refreshments will be provided.
In addition, this year several area high schools will be participating in the open house. Park View High School, Band Department will have a portion of their band playing music throughout the event. Dominion High School will have their Step-Team perform and Potomac Falls, Art Department will have several students on hand for face painting.
The Virginia State Police H.E.A.T. (Help Eliminate Auto Theft) Program will also be on hand to provide VIN Etching. VIN etching is the process of placing a light but visible stencil of your vehicle identification number on each piece of glass in your car - windshield, windows and sun roof. This deters vehicle theft, since in order to resell your car with an altered identification number the thief would have to replace all of the glass in the vehicle. For more information about VIN Etching and to view H.E.A.T.’s calendar of events, check out the H.E.A.T. web site at www.heatreward.com.
The Eastern Loudoun Station is located at 46620 East Frederick Drive in Sterling (adjacent to Rolling Ridge Elementary School).
The Eastern Loudoun Station provides substantial public safety services to the community and reduces travel time to the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters in Leesburg. The station also offers a community room available for public use to local non-profit organizations.
The Eastern Loudoun Station is the agency’s first stand-alone station. The Eastern Loudoun Station is one of four planned stations for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office opened their first county-owned station, the Dulles South Public Safety Center, in 2007 in the South Riding area. The station serves as a combined fire-rescue station and law enforcement station.
