CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County recently received seven achievement awards from the National Association of Counties. These awards recognize the ways that local governments are providing better, more innovative services to their residents, and strengthening communities across the country.
Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Award Program is designed to recognize innovative county government programs. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received. The awards are given in categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services that counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, environmental protection, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.
“I am delighted Chesterfield continues to be recognized by NACo each year for its innovative programs,” said County Administrator Dr. Joseph Casey. “We have such creative staff who are dedicated to providing better customer service, improvements in efficiency and sustainability, and engaging the residents and businesses in our community.”
The 2019 award winners are:
Juvenile Detention Home
Mental Health Support Services – Prevention Services
