Seeking Input on Substation

The Board of Supervisors, School Board and Sheriff Stephen O. Simpson will host a public input session on the proposed construction of Sheriff's Office substation next to Rolling Ridge Elementary School in Sterling.

The Sheriff's Office builds substations throughout Loudoun County to make it easier on deputies and residents, said Kraig Troxell, Sheriff's Office spokesperson. A new substation will allow deputies to report for roll call in the area they work in.

The 18,000-square-foot facility will house staff offices, a community room, deputy work room and temporary prisoner-holder facilities. The Sheriff's Office will provide 24-hour coverage seven days a week.

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.

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

The meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 1, at Rolling Ridge Elementary School, 500 East Frederick Drive, Sterling, at 6:30 p.m. To sign up to speak in advance, contact Dave Franklin, Sheriff's Office planner, 571-258-3075.
