Loudoun County, VA- For the second year in a row the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office reported the lowest crime rate in the region according to the Annual Report on Crime and Crime Control released by the Metropolitan Council of Governments (MWCOG).

In 2015, the rate of serious crimes saw 7.507 crimes per 1000 residents in Loudoun and is a 16% decrease in crime since 2012 when Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman took office. The 2015 crime rate was the lowest crime rate reported by any of the 22 regional law enforcement agencies from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC who partner with MWCOG. 

“This continued decease in crime is attributed to the diligent work of our deputies, detectives and civilian staff. Their enforcement, education, and prevention efforts are having a significant impact on crime,” noted Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman.

The MWCOG Annual Report on Crime and Crime Control focuses on Part I offenses as defined by the Federal Bureau of Investigations including homicide, aggravated assault, rape, robbery, burglary, auto theft and larceny. The report was released in September 2016 and can be found online at

MWCOG is an independent nonprofit association that is comprised of 22 local governments and 300 elected officials. The association brings together area leaders to address major regional issues.
