Loudoun County, VA- The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office is joining other law enforcement agencies in introducing the #9PMRoutine to help deter larcenies from vehicles and potential burglaries.

As summer is upon us and the temperatures are beginning to rise, so due the number of larcenies from vehicles and burglaries. In many cases, the suspects simply enter vehicles that are left unlocked and enter homes through open garage doors. 

The #9PMRoutine hashtag is being introduced to remind residents to make sure their vehicles, home doors, and garage doors are closed before they go to bed. The Loudoun Sheriff’s Office will post nightly reminders on Facebook and Twitter encouraging residents to participate with the hashtag #9PMRoutine.    

In a video released today, Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman reminds residents as they go through their nightly routine, “whether it be making a cup of hot tea, settling in to watch a movie, or checking on your kids- make sure all of your doors are locked and your garage door is closed.” The video can be viewed at 

Residents are also encouraged to immediately report all suspicious activity and vandalism, such as graffiti and damage to mailboxes, by calling the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at 703-777-1021.
