City of Fairfax Police Department

Message to the Community

The City of Fairfax Police Department is deeply saddened by the events in Minneapolis which resulted in the tragic death of George Floyd while in police custody. Our hearts go out to the Floyd family as they deal with the tremendous loss of someone they love, and to the citizens of Minneapolis as they try to mend their relationship with, and their trust of, law enforcement.

Protests and demonstrations have raised legitimate concerns about policing policies and practices that include police use of force, bias in policing, police accountability, and transparency. These issues are at the heart of a community’s relationship with its police department.

The City of Fairfax Police Department is committed to serving and protecting all members of our community with the utmost respect for each person, and with the mandate of ensuring the sanctity of life. We strive to protect the safety of everyone in a respectful manner, while upholding and enforcing the law.

Our agency continues to focus on hiring and recruiting officers who reflect the community they serve, reducing use of force by training officers in de-escalation techniques, and ensuring there is a robust and thorough review of all complaints of police misconduct.

We recognize that events involving law enforcement impact the reputation of all law enforcement officers, regardless of where the event occurs. We hope, and constantly strive, to maintain our community’s trust and support. We know this will take honest and open dialogue, unconventional partnerships, commitment, dedication and a willingness to learn from the past. We must work together to build a future that strives for fairness, respect, dignity, security, and justice for all. The City of Fairfax Police Department is fortunate to have an established Body Worn Camera program that has been in place since December of 2016. The program is supported by the City Manager and City Council, which also assists in supporting the police department’s goal of accountability and transparency.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge my pride in the officers who serve our community. They continuously demonstrate unwavering courage and dedication to public service and strive to protect the values of the policing profession, while maintaining respect and dignity for everyone. I am grateful for the level of professionalism displayed by the City of Fairfax police officers who have dedicated their lives to protect our community.

#LiveLifeConnected

The Independence Day Celebration Committee (IDCC) is pleased to announce that we will be selling our commemorative July 4th t-shirts on the steps of City Hall on Saturday, June 13 and Saturday, June 20 from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon. While social distancing, we ask that you drive up the circular drive in front of City Hall where IDCC members will be taking your order and placing it inside your vehicle ... we ask that you please do not get out of your vehicle. Sales will happen rain or shine.

The theme "There's No Place Like Home" was picked in the fall of 2019 - we had no idea how important that theme would be when it was chosen.

Shirts are availabe in red, white and blue at a cost of $5/youth (sizes XSmall - Large; unfortunately, we have no youth shirts in white); $10/adult (sizes Small - ###Large; we have a limited inventory of white shirts); and while supplies last, we will have the baseball hat for $10. Cash or Checks (made payable to IDCC)

Here's what you need to know about masks/face coverings.
#MaskUpVirginia

To protect each other, we all need to wear a face covering in indoor public settings, starting this Friday, May 29. This includes retail stores, barbershops, restaurants, government buildings, on public transportation, or anywhere where people can congregate in groups indoors.

I am also directing our Department of Labor and Industry to develop emergency regulations to reduce the risk of exposure to #COVID19 in our workplaces. These safety standards will apply to employers, and include use of PPE, sanitation, record keeping, and hazard communication.

We are making progress to contain the spread of #COVID19 in Virginia—let's keep working together to stay safe.
