LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA — Seven members of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office were recognized Thursday by the Virginia Sheriffs' Institute for their commitment to professional development.

The VSI Certification Program recognizes Virginia sheriffs and deputies who display a commitment to life-long learning and advancement of public safety as a profession.

Recognized from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office were Lieutenant Colonel Eric Prugh, 2nd Lieutenant Julian Berger, Sgt. Nancy Johnson, Sgt. Daniel Selby, Detective Elissa Wilk, Detective Nikki King and Investigator Daniel Maxfield.

Nineteen members of the LCSO have received the certification since the inaugural class of the VSI Certification Program in 2018, the largest number of recipients from any one sheriff’s office in Virginia.

“The number of staff who have received the VSI certification exemplifies the professionalism of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, and the expectations we have for the dedication to the service of our community,” Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman said in a statement Thursday

Each recipient of the certificate met specific requirements, which include years of service, education, and hours of training and professional development.

The awards were presented by Sheriff James E. Brown III of the City of Charlottesville, who serves as president of the VSI, and Dr. Robyn McDougle, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University.

The VSI Certification Program was developed by the Virginia Sheriffs’ Institute in partnership with the Virginia Sheriffs' Association, the Performance Management Group at the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at VCU and the Virginia Center for Policing Innovation.
