Are you still on a sugar rush from all the Halloween candy?!? We are! Thank you to these two little munchkins who shared some of their hard-earned trick or treating candy with us!! 🎃⭐️🍫🍬🍭

DFC Carpenter was honored to be part of Boy Scout Troop #2970 Retirement Flag Ceremony this week. When the United States flag becomes worn, torn, faded or badly soiled, it is time to replace it with a new flag, and the old flag should be "retired" with all the dignity and respect befitting our nation's flag. The traditional method of retirement is to incinerate the flag. The Scouts prepared the fire and the flag for the ceremony. Once the flag remnants and fire were ready, they placed the flag into the fire and maintained a vigil over the fire until all traces of the flag remnants were destroyed. Lastly, the fire was extinguished and the ashes were buried with a moment of silence.

It's day #2 of #NoShaveNovember at the LCSO Adult Detention Center B-Squad (day shift) and look at all the newly started beards! Stay with us all month, we'll keep you posted on our beards! Every dollar raised supports the efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment. So far the team has raised over $7,000!!! This is awesome, let’s keep the momentum going, please visit https://www.no-shave.org/team/lcso1757 to join the team and make your donation. We appreciate your support and generosity!

#FraudFriday It sounds like the perfect job: work at home, make thousands of dollars a month and have a career with a corporation. But this new twist is because scammers know that finding a job can be tough. The LCSO reminds residents of four signs of a job scam: -You need to pay to get the job. They may say they’ve got a job waiting, or guarantee to place you in a job if you just pay a fee for certification, training materials, or their expenses placing you with a company. But after you pay, the job doesn’t materialize. Employers and employment firms shouldn’t ask you to pay for the promise of a job. -You need to supply your credit card or bank account information. Don't give out your credit card or bank account information over the phone to a company unless you're familiar with them and have agreed to pay for something. Anyone who has your account information can use it. -The ad is for "previously undisclosed" federal government jobs Information about available federal jobs is free. And all federal positions are announced to the public on usajobs.gov. Don’t believe anyone who promises you a federal or postal job. -Check for complaints - Your local consumer protection agency, state Attorney General's Office, and the Better Business Bureau can tell you whether any complaints have been filed about a company. For more information please check out the Federal Trade Commission website here: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0243-job-scams#Signs

Congratulations to both of the Lessons in Law Enforcement sessions who graduated yesterday!!!! The Lessons in Law Enforcement Program is geared to The Official Loudoun County Public Schools students interested in a career in public safety. This semester the class was held in two sessions and has a total of 41 students. Last year’s session saw the largest class in the history of the program with 23 students participating. In the program, the students are introduced to all aspects of law enforcement during a 10-week course instructed by members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. Topics include patrol, criminal investigations and corrections. The program was developed by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Training Section in cooperation with the C. S. Monroe Technology Ctr. The first group of students graduated from the Lessons in Law Enforcement program in November 2012.

#FridayFaces #Loudoun meet Deputies Henry and Whitehead! They are assigned to Ashburn & Dulles South Stations! Deputy Whitehead transferred to the LCSO from Berkley County Sheriff's Office (WV) in June and is a veteran of the U.S.Army National Guard. Fun fact about Dep. Whitehead is that he was featured as an extra in the movie Gods and Generals. Deputy Henry joined the Sheriff's Office in December 2016 after graduating from college. Fun fact about Dep. Henry, he played college football for Frostburg State University. He was a linebacker for the Bobcats. If you see them on the streets please say hi!

Our entire agency sends thoughts and condolences to the Waller County Sheriff's Office and the family and friends of Deputy Loren Vasquez. Deputy Vasquez was dispatched to a high priority water rescue call when her patrol unit became airborne after driving into a water covered roadway. Her patrol unit landed upside down in a water filled ditch. Responding deputies were unable to gain access to Deputy Vasquez inside of her vehicle. Deputy Vasquez was 23-years-old and had just completed her 20 week Field Training Program, and had been on patrol as a single deputy unit for only three nights at the time of her death. Thank you for your service and may you Rest in Peace. #NeverForget #LODD https://www.odmp.org/officer/23800-deputy-sheriff-loren-vasquez

Members of the LCSO School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit and The Official Loudoun County Public Schools were recently interviewed by TF1, a national French TV channel and one of the most popular stations in Europe. The story followed the SRO at Brambleton Middle School to discuss the role of law enforcement in schools. France is currently considering placing SRO’s in their school system. This past year, the LCSO was named one of the best School Resource Officer Units in the United States after receiving the National Association of School Resource Officers Model Agency of the Year Award. https://www.tf1.fr/tf1/jt-13h/videos/etats-unis-policiers-font-partie-paysage-scolaire.html

LCSO Investigates Reported Sexual Assault in Ashburn https://bit.ly/2yJU4DC Loudoun County- Detectives with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office are seeking information about a sexual assault which was reported this week; however, it occurred on October 19. The juvenile victim reported that back on October 19, she was walking towards Claiborne Parkway on Stone Bridge High School grounds. The victim reported that sometime between 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., she was approached by three unknown juvenile males who grabbed her, pulled at her clothing and touched her inappropriately. The victim later reported the incident to law enforcement on October 29. The suspects in the case are described as being approximately 16-19 years old. One suspect was a Black male and the other two were Hispanic males. Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective C. Czekaj at 703-777-1021.

LCSO Kicks Off 2018 Holiday Toy Drive Campaign The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your assistance to help make this holiday season bright for children in Loudoun by donating to LCSO’s Holiday Toy Drive and Fill-The-Box Campaign! The Sheriff’s Office has partnered with two non-profit organizations, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #69 and Cole’s Closet, to help donate toys to fill “closets” with toys for children while they are at the hospital and to help less fortunate kids that during the holidays. Cole's Closet was created in 2002 by Ellen and Steve Tomczyk after they lost their six-month-old son to an undiagnosed brain disease. The Tomczyks spent four months in and out of area hospitals where they experienced first-hand the anxiety and fear families face when a child is hospitalized. Ellen and Steve began a toy drive at a family holiday party one year after Cole passed away and since then they have donated over 16,000 new toys to area hospitals. For more information about Cole’s Closet please visit www.colescloset.org. The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #69 hosts an Annual Cops and Kids shopping program in conjunction with Target in Sterling; however, this year the organization is also collecting toys from the community to go towards providing underprivileged children with a few presents. The FOP was founded in 1915 and it is committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and the safety of those we serve through education, legislation, information, community involvement, and employee representation. For more information about the FOP please visit https://www.vafop.com/. LCSO is asking community members to donate new, unwrapped toys to bring holiday cheer to children ages infant to the age of 17. Donations will be accepted from November 1 – December 13, 2018, and they can be dropped off at any LCSO Station, Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. The drop-off locations are: Eastern Loudoun Station 46620 East Frederick Drive, Sterling, VA 20164 Ashburn Station 20272 Savin Hill Drive, Ashburn, VA 20147 Dulles South Public Safety Center 25216 Loudoun County Parkway, Chantilly, VA 20152 Western Loudoun Station 47 W. Loudoun Street, Round Hill, VA 20142 LCSO Headquarters 803 Sycolin Road SE, Leesburg, VA 20175 Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for children ages infant to teen. Your donation will help make a difference in the lives of children with uncertain futures. For inquiries about making a donation, please contact us at (703) 777-0625. ###

Last day! #blackandwhitechallenge: No humans, no explanation. 7 days, 7 pictures!

#ThursdayThoughts If you see some scruffy-looking Loudoun County deputies in November, it's for a good cause. The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has joined law enforcement agencies across the United States in #NoShaveNovember to raise funds for cancer research and treatment and educate residents about preventative measures. For the second time, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the non-profit organization No-Shave November providing deputies the opportunity to grow their facial hair to provoke conversation and raise cancer awareness. The non-profit was launched in 2009 and over the last eight years, the campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. This year’s event will fund organizations including the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. In lieu of shaving, each deputy growing out their facial hair contributed $25 to participate and every dollar donated brings us one step closer to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Deputies have already collected over $5,000 thus far and are asking residents to join the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office team or donate to a deputy to reach our goal of $10,000. Please visit https://no-shave.org/team/LCSO1757 to make a donation. We appreciate your support and generosity!

This October, Deputy First Class Dawn Harding graduated from the D.A.R.E. America International train the trainer program and will be joining the Virginia D.A.R.E Mentorship Team.
