The VALEAC Annual Conference was held during the week of October 14, 2013. The Virginia Law Enforcement Professional Standards Commission (VLEPSC) met during this meeting to hear agencies for accredited/reaccredited status. During this meeting, Chairman Tim Longo stated:
“As you know, each year the Commission recognizes one of our many dedicated and professional volunteers who give their time and themselves to staffing the many VLEPSC assessments. They serve as assessors and team leaders to ensure the important business of State Accreditation is accomplished. The recipient, nominated by Mr. Dillon with concurrence of the Commission, follows many previous recipients of this award that has been awarded annually since 2002.
After the Commission’s careful consideration, it is my honor and privilege to announce that
