LEESBURG, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D – Loudoun) presented HJ 754 at a closed session of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. The resolution recognizes the Sheriff’s office’s efforts to train their deputies and other area first responders in crisis intervention, as well as education in deescalating behavioral health and addiction situations.
“My family and my neighbors are safer because of the great work of Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman as well as all law enforcement in Loudoun,” said Delegate Bell. “Crisis Intervention Training makes a big difference in how deputies relate to citizens, and I couldn’t be prouder of their efforts. With over 400 trained in CIT so far and a goal of 100% participation in the training by the end of the year, each and every Loudoun resident can rest easy knowing that our law enforcement is taking care of us.”
Delegate John J. Bell is a 26-year Air Force veteran serving his first term in the Virginia House of Delegates, representing the 87th District in Loudoun and Prince William Counties.
