Neighborhood Watch & Safety
Concerned residents and Brambleton Community Association have teamed up with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) to establish a Neighborhood Watch program throughout Brambleton. The program focuses on educating and encouraging residents to “Say something when you see something;” resident patrols are not part of this program. Neighborhood Watch signs have been installed throughout the community to remind residents of the need to report all suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s Office.
- If you see any suspicious activity, call the LCSO immediately at 703-777-1021, or call 911 if a crime is in progress.
- Subscribe to B_Alert@Brambleton on Facebook to discuss Neighborhood Watch-related topics with your neighbors. This is a resident sponsored Facebook page and is not administered by BCA.
Park & Facility Security
In conjunction with the LCSO patrols, Brambleton employs a Parks & Facilities Attendant to provide additional patrols at BCA parks and facilities. The Attendant patrols community facilities and parks for undesirable activity after dark. Residents are reminded that all BCA parks are closed at dark. Anyone found in a community facility without authorization or at a BCA park after dark will be asked to leave.
Traffic Law Enforcement
Speeding on residential streets is often a concern among residents. Please be reminded that the speed limit on all Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) residential streets in Brambleton is 25 mph unless otherwise signed. Speeding throughout the community should be reported to LCSO at 703-777-1021 or on the website.
Radar & Message Trailer
The Brambleton Community Association (BCA) Management office receives frequent concerns and requests from residents to address traffic related issues throughout Brambleton. While the Association cannot enforce traffic laws on VDOT streets, it can bring awareness to those recurring issues and work with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) to determine if there is need for increased enforcement. One of the tools BCA has to bring awareness to community traffic issue is its radar and message trailer.
BCA has worked with LCSO and VDOT to implement and deploy a radar/message trailer on Brambleton streets, both public and private. The trailer is used to bring awareness to drivers about recurring traffic concerns throughout Brambleton. It is used by both BCA and LCSO to alert drivers of their speed when over the legal limit, warn drivers of conditions or future road detours/closures, and to collect traffic data that is shared with LCSO to help demonstrate the need for additional patrols and enforcement throughout the community.
Brambleton residents can request the trailer on their street if they are concerned with ongoing speed issues. The request can be made by completing the online Radar Trailer Request form. The trailer will be deployed systematically as requests are received. Typically, the trailer will remain on a street for approximately one week before it is moved to the next location.
Please Note: The trailer is for awareness purposes only. It does not replace the need for traffic law enforcement by LCSO or state police. BCA cannot enforce traffic laws on VDOT streets. Residents with enforcement requests should contact the LCSO non-emergency number at 703-777-1021.

Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office
Brambleton is served by the Dulles South Station which hosts regular quarterly public meetings. These meetings provide details for everything from the station’s leadership team to a statistical analysis of crime trends in our local area and the greater Loudoun community. For more information about upcoming meetings, contact LCSO at 571-258-3200.
In addition to the outreach of the public meetings, the Sheriff’s Office also offers a robust website at https://sheriff.loudoun.gov/ where residents can view the quarterly report online, report a crime, access the community resource directory and more. LCSO recently introduced the LCSO App which is another way to connect with the Sheriff’s Office. The app provides mobile functionality, news and feedback options. The app is available in both the App Store and at Google Play.
The Sheriff’s Office also provides regular updates and tips via Alert Loudoun where you can self-subscribe to the alerts you in which you are interested.
Community Policing Officer
Brambleton Community Association is pleased to host the Community Policing Officer serving the Dulles area. LCSO defines Community Policing as an approach to law enforcement that often employs non-traditional methods of problem solving and one which utilizes crime prevention strategies to address quality of life issues that often lead to criminal activity. Residents are encouraged to contact 911 for emergencies or to use the non-emergency number of 703-777-1021 as appropriate.
Registered Sex Offenders
BCA recommends that residents know who is living around them by checking the Virginia State sex offender registry often.
Reporting Hazards/Safety Concerns
The Association also relies on residents to report any hazards or safety concerns on the common area to the BCA Management office. While routine inspections of the common area are performed, the eyes of 20,000 residents will see more than the eyes of the few staff members. Please immediately report all common area hazards to the BCA Management Office at 703-542-6263.
Personal Security Camera Registration Opportunity
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office uses CrimeReports.com as an online mapping and analysis service that combines the value of law enforcement data with the ease of use of Google-based mapping and an analytics module so that members of the public can view police data in a high-impact map or summary descriptive format.
Through this program, residents have the option to register their security camera. Registration is 100% voluntary and does not provide the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office with direct access to your security system/camera. Your personal information will be kept confidential by LCSO, and registration information will only be accessed by law enforcement if there is a criminal incident that was possibly captured by your security camera. LCSO detectives or deputies may request a copy of any video captured by your camera if it may assist in the investigation of a crime.
Residents interested in participating in the program are asked to register their camera here.
For more information on the program, contact Kraig Troxell, Media Relations and Communications Manager with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, at 703-771-5278.
Security cameras do require review and approval by the BCA Covenants Committee. Find the Design Review Application here.
