Detective Scott Renalds of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office was named Officer of the Year by Louisa County Crime Solvers.
“Thank you very much I appreciate it,” Renalds said during the breakfast meeting on Jan. 15. “I really want to salute these guys who actually saved lives. That is incredible and there are two lives in Louisa County that are attributed to the LCSO.”
Renalds serves as the project manager for the Central Virginia Law Enforcement Information Exchange. The exchange was formed from part of a 1.2 million Homeland Security grant and allows 22 agencies to join the NCIS network.
Renalds was instrumental in procuring vehicle mounted license plate readers and mobile data terminals in LCSO patrol cars allowing deputies to be more efficient and safer.
He recently completed polygraph training and will become the first LCSO officer certified to conduct polygraphs in Louisa County.
Renalds is in the criminal investigation unit and joined LCSO in August 2007.
