It has been a busy week for members of the Loudoun County Underwater Search and Evidence Recovery Team (USERT). Deputy First Class (DFC) Brick, DFC Presson, and DFC Campbell attended a 32 hour training course in Fredericksburg and Richmond. This course certified these deputies as Underwater Criminal Investigators. DFC Smith, the USERT Team Leader and Master Underwater Criminal Investigator, accompanied his team to provide assistance and encouragement to our deputies as they took part in this demanding training.
During the course deputies learned about maritime crime scene documentation, sketches, photography, and evidence preservation. They practiced blind search techniques in zero foot visibility water. Our USERT deputies practiced recovering knives, firearms, vehicles, and bodies. The newly certified deputies will play an integral part in the future prosecution of a wide variety of criminal cases.
Upon their return to #Loudoun, our highly motivated deputies could not wait to get back into the water to further hone their skills. On Thursday the LCSO Underwater Search and Evidence Recovery Team joined up with the Virginia State Police Dive Team to conduct training at the Luck Stone Quarry in Leesburg. The training consisted of a mock body search and recovery. Thank you to Luck Stone for the training site and thank you to VSP Dive Team for joining our training! ... See MoreSee Less

Hopefully you guys mention what a good reputation Wilsons Wild Animal Park has in the community, and how it has been a cherished landmark for decades. Also, maybe mention that PETA is a political organization that has been accused of being a domestic terrorist group that aims for total animal liberation. They would rather see animal dead than in captivity. Doesnt take a whole lot of investigation to figure out their long term goals and they begin by taking out small zoos, breeders, the meat and dairy industry, and eventually pet owners. It doesnt end at them stealing animals from zoos like this. They will soon come for YOUR animals as well. They already have. www.petakillsanimals.com/
Are they teaching bus drivers to cross the yellow before the stop as well? I've noticed that a lot, and I gotta say, its a bit disconcerting when it happens. I understand they're trying to keep kids safe, but crossing that centerline doesn't seem like a good idea.

The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a home invasion/robbery that occurred August 14th at approximately 10 P.M.
Deputies were dispatched to a fight on Mt. Sidney School Ln., Mount Sidney, VA. Upon arrival, they found a man bloodied from an assault.
Further investigation revealed that a man, woman, and infant child were inside their apartment when two armed and masked men entered. Once inside they directed the woman to the bathroom and took her cell phone. The male resident confronted the two and a physical confrontation ensued. The fight spilled into the hallway and continued. A neighbor heard the commotion and attempted to break up the fight; he was subsequently punched in the face by one of the assailants.
The two suspects, only described as being “light skinned”, fled the area in a black car.
The injured resident and his neighbor both received minor injuries. The woman and child were uninjured.
If anyone has any information about this case, please contact Investigator Ron Reid at 540-245-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 800-322-2017. ... See MoreSee Less

Riverheads Elementary School Principal John Matherly contacted Dr. Eric W. Bond, Division Superintendent for Augusta County Public Schools yesterday August 12, 2019, to pass on a very positive compliment on SRO Chris Pultz who serves the Riverheads School District. A parent called in to say "thank you" for having a School Resource Officer at Riverheads Elementary.
Deputy Pultz was out helping with the morning car rider duty; greeting students and helping them out of their cars. The parent felt that it was great for our students to experience a police officer interacting positively with their child, other students and parents. He also felt that his presence made our school feel less like a potential target.
We certainly appreciate this positive parental feedback and the small, but daily impact our SRO’s presence have on the community
Great work Deputy Pultz! ... See MoreSee Less

We were particularly impressed by two of your officers who helped a mother push her handicapped child up the hill. Kudos to those officers and your entire department for a job well done!

Please be aware of a Social Security scam circulating. Several individuals in the area have been contacted by someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration and threatened with arrest unless payment was made over the phone. THIS IS A SCAM.
-Never give out or confirm sensitive information such as account numbers, dates of birth, or social security numbers. If someone has contacted you, you can’t be sure who they are.
-Never trust Caller ID. Scammers use computer technology to spoof phone numbers to make calls appear as if it is coming from an official office or area code. The call could really be coming from anywhere in the world.
-HANG UP. The longer they have you on the phone, the more time they have to pull you in.Scam artists go to great lengths to trick you out of your personal information or money. By educating yourself and knowing how to identify and report various... ... See MoreSee Less
They called me. I told them to send the officer or I could make it easy and just let them speak to one of the officers that was near me. They hung up. No fun!
I'm fairly certain the SSA isn't going to call. It's the federal government, they'll send you a snail-mail letter. If there was any truth to it, most of the damage would be done before you received it.
They really should stop this scam. Everyone knows about it by now.
They called me...just hang up like i did

Wow. What an exciting weekend for Page County! A big thanks to Ben “Cooter” Jones and Alma Viator for bringing Hazzard Nation to the Shenandoah Speedway this weekend! The men and women of the Page County Sheriff’s Office enjoyed working the event and meeting so many supportive people. From the artists, the cast, volunteers, event staff and attendees, all were very supportive of our presence and thankful for our service! We are glad to report there were no incidents to speak of, no traffic issues and the event went smoothly and just as planned. Command Staff from the Sheriff’s Office, Page County Emergency Services Department, Virginia State Police, VDOT and the Shenandoah Police Department collaborated with Cooter’s staff for months ahead of the event, preplanning for disasters, weather events, traffic crashes and congestion, emergency medical events and lost or missing persons.
We had one particular incident where a four year old child with autism went missing. Our missing child protocol was immediately put in to place and the child was found by first responders within minutes and reunited with the mother. Preplanning and coordination made this protocol smooth and effective!
We were told by a stage manager with the artists, that she was very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the officers assigned to the security staff. She said that there are many places they travel to that police won’t even speak to them. She said that the security detail was great to work with!
Chris Jackson with the Band Confederate Railroad sent a message saying, “This is Chris Jackson from Confederate Railroad. I was just wanting to tell the Sheriff thank you for sending your officers out yesterday to the show. Wanted to say how professional all of your officers were and how they was willing to help any way they could.”
Staff also assisted with multiple medical emergencies (mainly heat related) and assisted many elderly and handicapped individuals back and forth from the parking area to the festival grounds.
We are thankful for the many people who supported our local restaurants, hotels, businesses and gas stations. This county is fortunate to have events such as this and hope that we can assist with future events. Thanks again for all of the support! Check out a few of the pictures captured this weekend! ...

And, for heavens sake, stop for school busses! Both directions!
some stop sign enforcement would be good at King and Bridge. I think 1 out of 5 people actually stop there... most just roll through.
Don't worry... they'll slow down to 10mph in the school zone, then do 45 up the rest of Rosser like they do every morning.
Good luck with that when the majority of people still text and drive or use hand helds driving. :/

Got a scam call wanting to talk about my computer and did I have windows. I told them I did not have a computer and all my windows were on my house. Then I hung up.
This was done multiple times to my parents. They told them that my son was in jail (he was at school) and that my nephew had been in an accident (when he was actually serving his country in the Air Force). I dont know how this information is obtained by these callers to convince people that their loved ones are in need of help, but it upset my mother because she thought her grandsons were in a bad situation. Really makes me mad.
