HOT addresses heroin abuse through targeted enforcement, education, training, prevention, and rehabilitation.

In October 2016 he was appointed as the Chief of Police for the Town of Leesburg, Virginia.


Prior to this assignment, he was a captain with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office where he served the Loudoun and Northern Virginia community for 20 years.


He has been successful in implementing innovative leadership and management techniques that have created a high level of motivation and morale with the individuals and teams he has been charged with.  Greg has consistently demonstrated the proven ability to establish procedures that build cohesive units or teams and create positive and productive work environments.  He has established and maintained a reputation placed firmly on the foundation of honesty, loyalty, integrity, professionalism, accountability, and responsiveness.  These qualities have enabled him to be successful in building partnerships with stakeholders, other law enforcement entities, and the community.


Middleburg Chief of Police AJ Panebianco


AJThe goal for the Middleburg police department is that every officer is known by their first name. It keeps them seen as part of the community.


Chief AJ has a AAS and a BS both in in Administration of Justice and sits on the board of directors for the Virginia Chiefs of Police Association and chairs the Professional Image and Ethics Committee as well as a member of the Awards and Budget committees.


Chief AJ began policing in Covington VA where he served as a dispatcher for the Covington Police Department. He moved into corrections for about a year and then into his first policing position with the Buena Vista Police Department in 1988. Chief AJ worked his way through the ranks and eventually was promoted to Chief of police in 2007.


In 2011 he served as the police chief for Louisa Virginia and following the earthquake decided to move to less shaky ground in Middleburg where he has served in the position of police chief for just over five years now.


Chief AJ approaches leadership in much the same way as he approaches policing…it is a team effort. His philosophy is that …The police, the community, and the administration have to work together to be successful.
