Maggie DeBoard, the Town of Herndon’s police chief, has been named the president of a statewide police foundation.
DeBoard was named the president of the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police & Foundation, a nonprofit professional membership association and educational foundation.
Dana Schrad, executive director of VACP, said that DeBoard is the first female president for the organization.
“Although she would be the first to downplay the significance of this, Chief DeBoard is a stellar example of a dedicated police professional and a true leader among police executives,” Schrad wrote in a statement.
VACP was founded in 1926 and has more than 600 members made up of active and retired state, federal, local, and private law enforcement and criminal justice agency executives, administrators, and managers.
