Fairfax County Police Department Welcomes Newly Appointed Chief Kevin Davis

Today marks Kevin Davis’ first day as Chief of the Fairfax County Police Department. He was appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors on April 23rd. Deputy County Executive for Public Safety Dave Rohrer has been acting as interim since former chief Edwin C. Roessler retired in February.

Davis took over as commissioner of the Baltimore Police Department after a period of protests and civil unrest. During his tenure he established a Department of Justice Compliance and Accountability Division and a fully implemented body-worn camera program. He also worked to build trust with the community and foster transparency by providing information about the department’s internal policies and all police-involved shootings and expanded the department’s police chaplains program, which trained more than 100 faith community leaders to serve as ambassadors in the community.

While serving Anne Arundel County, Davis was the first chief in Maryland to require police officers to train for, carry and administer naloxone to individuals suffering from drug overdoses, and created a Crisis Intervention Team including mental health professionals to respond to calls for service where mental illness or a behavioral crisis were factors.

Davis’s leadership experience includes reform initiatives in use of force, training and technology that have received international attention and accolades.

Davis is an adjunct professor at American University and a lecturer at Catholic University of America. He was recently appointed to a four-year term on the state’s Commission on Judicial Disabilities, an independent body that hears complaints against Maryland judges. He has served on numerous professional boards and commissions and was a member of the Justice Reinvestment Oversight Board in Maryland.

He has a master's degree in management from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree in English from Towson University. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy and the FBI National Executive Institute.

We’re kicking off Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage month by highlighting some of our diverse officers! Today, we’re introducing you to Sergeant Ali Sepehri.

Sergeant Ali Sepehri was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. After finishing high school, he moved to Virginia and stayed with family. He became a volunteer EMT and a firefighter while attending Northern Virginia Community College. He transferred to Virginia Tech and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. While in Blacksburg, he volunteered with Blacksburg Rescue Squad and worked for an EMS transport team while taking classes. Sergeant Sepehri’s heart was always at being a first responder and to “run in when everyone else was running out.”

His dream was to become a flight medic onboard of Fairfax One, the police helicopter. He applied to the Fairfax County Police Department and became a police officer right before graduating from Virginia Tech.

Sergeant Sepehri has been serving with the FCPD for 14 years. He began his career in McLean District Station and was assigned to a midnight squad. He transferred to the Helicopter Division and was able to fulfill his life-long dream of becoming a flight medic. Once promoted to Sergeant, he went to the Mount Vernon District Station for a short time prior to being transferred to the Safety Officer Section. He is currently working as a safety officer, handling COVID-19 exposures and serving as the Department’s infectious control officer. Sergeant Sepehri also assists the operational safety officers and the Department’s lead safety officer. Sergeant Sepehri continues to serve the Helicopter Division as a supplemental team member and helps the Department’s Civil Disturbance Unit.

Sergeant Sepehri’s advice for others considering joining law enforcement; “Law enforcement is a career not a job. Become a police officer to make a difference in your community. Enjoy the ups and downs as you go through them and rely on your family’s support.”

Stay tuned as we continue to highlight our officers throughout the month of May!

Our False Alarm Reduction Unit (FARU) reached a milestone in 2021, our 20 years of operation. FARU was recognized with a National Award for a Sustained False Alarm Management program from Security Industry Alarm Coalition in 2013. Our outreach to community members, business owners and alarm companies has made an impact in alarm reduction.

Prior to FARU, the number of false alarms reached 45,721 with approximately 125 calls for service a day. Over the last 20 years, our False Alarm Reduction Unit has been able to reduce alarm calls for service by 74.7%.

All the original staff hired in 2001 are still running strong with the unit. Their many years of experience in false alarm management has led to the unit’s success. The team’s great communication and customer service has played a large role and will continue to do so in the years to come.

Congratulations to:

Bill Boyle – 20 years on Patrol with McLean Station – 20 years with FARU (40 years FCPD)
Debra Olson – 5 years Crossing Guard Fair Oaks and 1 year Parking Enforcement Mason – 20 years with FARU (26 years FCPD)
Tu-Phuong Lam – 4 years with Health Department – 20 years with FARU (24 years of service)
Taranjeet Singh – 1 year Parking Enforcement West Springfield – 20 years with FARU (21 years FCPD)

Thank you for your years of dedicated service to Fairfax County!

Major Crimes Bureau detectives work diligently to bring justice to some of the most vulnerable groups in our communities. Our Major Crimes Bureau Detective of the Month program allows us to highlight the hard work of one of these detectives. This month we are highlighting Detective Michelle Pastora.

An elderly exploitation case worked by Detective Pastora involved a victim residing in an assisted living facility being exploited by one of her sons who had power of attorney. The suspect sold the mother’s house and split the proceeds with another brother and refused to pay for the facility, which led to the filing of a lawsuit for payments that are in arrears.

Detective Pastora, seeking to stop the loss of the remaining victim’s funds, froze the victim’s accounts and the suspect’s accounts, saving the remaining $140,000 the victim had. Detective Pastora consulted with the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney and obtained ten felony warrants against the suspect.

Elderly exploitation cases take copious amounts of time and energy. Family emotions, attitudes, and history often cloud judgement and cooperation. The case above shows Detective Pastora’s tenacity in seeking justice for victims that cannot care for themselves.

Detective Pastora’s dedication to her victims is the drive that is needed to successfully investigate these heartbreaking cases. Her perseverance, patience, and the time and energy she puts in to help her victims is apparent in every case she investigates. She is a valuable member of the Financial Crimes Squad and is very deserving of Detective of the Month honors.

Congratulations to Michelle, she is our Detective of the Month!

This morning, the Major Crimes Bureau were treated to fresh, homemade biscuits courtesy of Denise Estaniel-Lee. Ms. Lee, the owner of Social Burger and her newly open Biscuit Baby in Vienna, was awarded the Major Crimes Bureau Unsung Hero Award last week for her continued support of our law enforcement community. Since the beginning of the pandemic, she has made it her mission to provide meals to those on the frontlines but also to those in her community who do not always have the means to provide for themselves or their families. Ms. Lee’s commitment her community and police department is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Ms. Lee for your continued generosity and support!
