Sheriff Lippa

Sheriff Lippa began his career in public safety in 1975 as a Police Aide in Henrico County. Lippa's sworn service to the citizens of the Commonwealth began in 1976 when he was sworn in as a Henrico Police Officer. Lippa graduated from the academy with the Top Skills award. The award covered firearms, driving, and physical fitness. Lippa continued as a Henrico Officer until 1979. Lippa then began his Virginia State Police career, graduating from the 67th Basic State Police Academy with addition physical fitness awards. From 1979 to 1989 he was a Virginia State Trooper, stationed in Caroline County. 

Lippa was promoted to Sergeant and assigned to the Virginia State Police Academy from 1989 until 1992. Lippa then transferred back to his adopted home, Caroline County, and served as a Sergeant over Caroline and King George counties from 1992 to 1994. 

Lippa was promoted once again in 1994 to the rank of State Police First Sergeant. In that position, Lippa was the manager of the Bowling Green office of the Virginia State Police. In this position, Lippa was responsible for all state police activities in Caroline and King George counties. Lippa retired from the Virginia State Police in 2003 to run for Sheriff of Caroline County. Lippa said, at the time, he thought the county "...needs a Sheriff who is more responsive to the needs of its citizens." He won just over 66% of the vote in the 2004 general election against a 12-year incumbent, carrying all but one voting precinct in the county. It was Lippa's first attempt at a public office. 

In 2007, Lippa won 70% of the popular vote, winning every voting precinct in the county, despite a 3-way race for the office.

Once again in 2011, Lippa easily won a third term as the Caroline County Sheriff. "I am both proud and humbled to be chosen to lead the Sheriff's Office here in Caroline for another 4 years," Sheriff Lippa remarked.

In 2015 Sheriff Lippa, once again, won the majority vote and in 2019 he ran unopposed, making him the second longest term Sheriff for Caroline County.

Lippa is a graduate from the Central Police Academy, the 4th Basic Henrico Police Academy, the 67th Virginia State Police Academy, and the 100th session of the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command. He also graduated from the 89th session of the National Sheriff's Association's National Sheriff's Institute. Lippa holds an Associates Degree in Education from J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College, a Bachelor's in the Administration of Justice from Virginia State University, and a Post Baccalaureate Certificate from Virginia Commonwealth University. 

Lippa is married to his lovely wife of over 35 years, Donna. He has four children, eight grandsons and one granddaughter and he lives in the Bowling Green area with his wife.
