Sheriff's Office Substation Moves to Sterling

Substations Bring Deputies Closer to Home

The Sheriff's Office plans to build a new substation in Sterling Park before the end of the year.

The department builds substations throughout Loudoun County to make it easier on deputies and residents, said Kraig Troxell, Sheriff's Office spokesperson.

"It's a large county," he said, "and it's growing rapidly."

Now, Sterling deputies and residents have to report to the Sheriff's Office in Leesburg.

A new substation located across from Rolling Ridge Elementary School on East Frederick Street in Sterling Park, will allow deputies to report for roll call in the area they work in. Residents will be able to go to the substation to obtain accident reports, file a complaint, and if there's a warrant for an arrest, turn themselves in to the substation, Troxell said.

The Sterling station will have temporary holding cells and an intoxilizer, to test blood-alcohol levels.

Currently, there are two substations in Round Hill and Ashburn. The Sheriff's Office plans to open a substation in South Riding in a few months.
