Press Release - Orange County Earns National Achievement Award for Public Safety Improvements

ORANGE COUNTY, Va. – Orange County has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that strengthen services for residents.

This award was received in recognition of Orange County’s “Connected Public Safety Advancements.” These advancements were anchored in the development of the new Public Safety Building, adoption of a new computer-aided dispatch system, and the launch of the P25 digital radio system. Individually, each of these projects was a significant leap forward, but their collective impact has been revolutionary. As a result, Orange County is strategically and tactically positioned to continue to serve the citizens of Orange County.

NACo Achievement Awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice and public safety, county administration, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.

“Staff are thankful to the residents of Orange County and the Board of Supervisors for their support of these projects. We are excited to provide the community with these new technologies,” said Stephanie Straub, Assistant County Administrator. More information about the award-winning projects is available in the January 2022 and February 2022 issues of the Orange County Insight newsletter.
