Residents areinvited to tour the Loudoun County Sheriff Office’s new Ashburn Station during dedication ceremonies planned Saturday morning.
The opening marks the final step in the agency’s plan to build substations in each service area. Located at 20272 Savin Hill Drive in the One Loudoun neighborhood, the Ashburn Station serves the second largest population—98,362 residents—of all of the agency’s station areas in the county. Only the Dulles South Station covers a larger service area.
Sheriff Mike Chapman said the station concept helps deputies and detectives better serve the neighborhoods where they are assigned.
Saturday’s dedication of the $15 million complex begins at 10 a.m. and includes an open house with self-guided tours of the facility from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a display of Sheriff’s Office equipment, including the Mobile Command Unit, the Motor Unit, Dive Team, ATVs and the small Unmanned Aircraft System from the Search and Rescue Team.
The Sheriff’s Office opened its first county-owned station in 2007 in the Dulles South area. The Eastern Loudoun Station in Sterling opened in 2010. The Western Loudoun Station in Round Hill opened in 2016.
