Loudoun community corrections director to retire

Loudoun County’s longtime director of community corrections, Ted G. McDaniel, will retire Jan. 1, county spokeswoman Anna Nissinen has announced.

McDaniel, 59, a native of Danville, Va., began leading the Community Corrections Department in 1990. He previously served as a police officer in Danville and an adult probation and parole officer for the Virginia Department of Corrections.

Chuck Wyant is overseeing community corrections under the supervision of Deputy County Administrator Linda Neri while McDaniel uses vacation leave, Nissinen said. Wyant was formerly in charge of court security for the sheriff’s office.

The Community Corrections Department coordinates alternative sentencing for nonviolent offenders, allowing them to perform unpaid community service as an alternative to incarceration. The office oversees probation and collection of court costs, fines and restitution payments; provides an alternative bonding program for nonviolent offenders who cannot make bail; and offers substance abuse and counseling programs.

A Nov. 14 fire forced the Community Corrections Department to move from its offices on Loudoun Street to a building at 106 Edwards Ferry Rd. The county Fire Marshal’s Office ruled that the fire was arson. The incident is under investigation, officials said. No one was injured in the fire, which caused an estimated $200,000 in damage.
