🇺🇸😥 We are saddened to learn of the passing of (FCPD Captain - retired) Dave Vice.

Captain Vice was a career LEO, serving as an Officer, Supervisor, leader, mentor, and inspiration to everyone he met.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dave, the Vice family, and with our Loudoun- Dulles F.O.P. Lodge 69 brothers and sisters during this time.

We are incredibly sad to learn the news of the passing of David S. Vice, the the Director of the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy.

Director Vice began his law enforcement career in 1982 when he joined the United States Capitol Police as a police officer. A year later he transferred to the Fairfax County Police Department where he retired as a Captain in 2008. Director Vice held multiple leadership positions with the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy and the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy prior to being named Director of the NVCJTA in September 2016.

Please join us as we send our prayers to the family of Director Vice.

Director Vice, Thank you for your service to the community!!

🇺🇸😥 We regret to inform you that City of Mission Police (TX) Cpl. Jose Luis Espericueta was shot and killed attempting to apprehend a suspect armed with a handgun.

A woman flagged down officers in the area of Stewart Road and Business Highway 83 and told them that her son had just shot at her car with a handgun. Corporal Espericueta and other officers responded to the scene and located the subject, who then fled on foot.

As the man ran he turned and opened fire, striking Corporal Espericueta multiple times. Other officers returned fire and killed the man.

Corporal Espericueta’s tour of duty was 13 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Corporal Espericueta, the Espericueta family, and with our brothers and sisters in the City of Mission Police Department.

🇺🇸😥 We regret to inform you that Sacramento (CA) Officer Tara O’Sullivan was helping de escalate a domestic incident, when she was shot and killed while protecting the citizens of her community.

Officer O’Sullivan was 26 years old, and had graduated from the Academy in December 2018.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Officer O’Sullivan, the O’Sullivan family, and with our brothers and sisters in the Sacramento Police Department.

#ThinBlueLine #BlueLineFamily #EnoughIsEnough

It is with a broken heart that we have to share with all of you that earlier today we lost one of our own. While on a call for service in North Sacramento, Officer Tara O’Sullivan was shot and killed. She gave her young life while protecting our community.

We are devastated tonight. There are no words to convey the depth of the sadness we feel, or how heartbroken we are for the family of our young, brave officer. The men and women of our police department will continue to do our jobs to protect our community, and we will draw strength from the courage of Tara.

Our hearts are with Tara’s family, whose pain can hardly be imagined. Please hold her family in your thoughts and prayers.

🇺🇸😥 RIP Deputy Joseph Solano.

Rest easy Deputy, we have the watch.

Dear Joe,

Yesterday, we lost a friend. We came to say goodbye and wept for the loss of you. Your family was with us; we wanted them to see how much you meant to us, as your family, too. We walked beside them and behind them as we followed you.

Soon, we will lay you to rest, but not without a million thoughts of you, flashes of memories with you, and questions of what more of everything we could have had with you, first running through our minds. We respect you, love you and deeply miss you.

Your LASD brothers and sisters.

Off-Duty Sheriff's Deputy Shot in the Head in Alhambra

🇺🇸😥 We regret to inform you that an off-duty Los Angeles County (CA) Deputy was targeted and shot in the head at a restaurant.

The suspect was not stopped, was able to change clothes, and is currently at large.

Situational awareness is a trait that does not end when we clock off shift, especially since we can be recognized outside of the work environment.

Our thoughts and prayers are with this Deputy, and our brothers and sisters of the LASD.

A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy was in critical condition after being shot in the head at a fast food restaurant in Alhambra Monday, authorities said.

Within 24 hours, the NYPD lost Detective Joseph Calabrese and Deputy Chief Steven Silks, both Officers with over 35 years tenure each with the department, to suicide.

NYPD Chief Terence Monahan is asking all of us, regardless of agency, rank, assignment, whether you wear a badge or not - have a conversation, make the time to talk with each other. Reach out.

It’s okay to not be okay. You’re never alone.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Silks and Calabrese families, the NYPD, and with our brothers and sisters in Public Safety.

Fairfax County Public Safety supports Ray Morrogh for Commonwealth Attorney.

We support Ray Morrogh for Commonwealth's Attorney !!!

The Fairfax Coalition of Police Local 5000, IUPA, International Union of Police Associations Local 5000 and the Fairfax County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics, International Association of Firefighters Local 2068, are proud to join forces in announcing our endorsements for Ray Morrogh to be Re- elected as Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney.

Fairfax County is one of the safest jurisdictions in the nation, in no small part to the dedication, leadership, and commitment to justice and equity of our Commonwealth’s Attorney, Ray Morrogh. As Commonwealth’s Attorney, he has had a significant impact in making sure Fairfax County is the community we expect through ensuring a strong, effective, and fair Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office that pursues and fights for justice. At the same time, he has worked collaboratively within the criminal justice system to develop initiatives to best support the citizens of Fairfax County such as the Veterans Court, Drug Court, and Mental Health Court/ Diversion First.

Furthermore, his dedication to victims, especially our most vulnerable- children, the elderly, and those with special needs, has been unsurpassed. For a demonstration, one need not look any further than the support and collaboration his office shows every day with the Safespot Children’s Advocacy Center and our Multi- Disciplinary Teams in working to prevent Child Abuse.

We don’t need agendas in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, especially those that flagrantly dismiss the Rule of Law. We need a strong, effective, and responsible prosecutor that will continue to work for a criminal justice system that is equitable for all. Mr. Morrogh has demonstrated a commitment to these ideals throughout his career, and we look forward to seeing him continue to serve the citizens of Fairfax County.

Brothers Before Others - public

Brothers Before Others - public

With the expectation of being perfect emotionless robots, the American police officer has become a master at hiding.

The stresses that our civil servants internalize have resulted in marital problems, spousal abuse, alcoholism, chemical dependency and even suicide.

Today, after 38 years of decorated service, NYPD Chief Steven Silks took his own life just days from his retirement.

If you are a member of the service and find yourself at a breaking point, PLEASE reach out for help. In a profession that has over 800,000 sworn members, there is no problem that someone else hasn’t experienced. You are NEVER alone.

If you have a loved one who wears a shield, encourage them to the point of annoying them to be open with you. Every police officer needs to know that, using Sheriff Clarke’s words: “excellence” is expected, not “perfection”.

The more we unjustly penalize our police officers for the most mundane errors, the more likely they are to internalize. The body and the mind can only bear so much. We ALL have a breaking point.

For those in need, COPLine is a friend of BBO and is confidential. Even if you can’t talk to the ones around you, on behalf of those who love you and need you, please reach out.

Our thoughts are with the NYPD family.

🇺🇸

Audio: In Robocall, Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid Blasts “Complete and Total Lie” in Commonwealth’s Attorney Race | Blue Virginia

The Fairfax F.O.P., Lodge 77 supports Ray Morrogh for Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney.

As our membership consists of regional Law Enforcement Officers, we can attest Mr Morrogh has a proven track record representing and protecting the citizens of Fairfax County. Mr Morrogh does not play political favors, he holds people accountable.

His challenger, on the other hand, has only had his Virginia bar license since 2017, has questionable donors, and dismissed a candidate questionnaire presented by this Lodge which effectively limits a working relationship with regional law enforcement.

Furthermore, Mr Morrogh has received a host of endorsements including the Washington Post Editorial Board, Blue Virginia, Sun Gazette News, Fairfax County Professional Firefighters & Paramedics, Southern States Police Benevolent Association, Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid, Dave Marsden for Senate, Dick Saslaw, Chap Petersen, Scott A. Surovell, Senator George Barker, Senator Janet Howell, Senator Jennifer B. Boysko, Delegate Kaye Kory, Delegate David Bulova, Mark Sickles, Patrick Hope, Delegate Vivian Watts, Del. Paul Krizek, Sen. Ken Plum, and others.

All of Mr Morrogh’s endorsements have vested ties to the Commonwealth and citizens of Fairfax County, something his challenger does not.

Please share this message and vote for Ray Morrogh.

It’s okay to not be okay.

Our Public Safety families see, hear, speak, cope, and shoulder trauma that citizens never experience, nor do we want our loved ones to ever know about.

This trauma can accumulate over time, with little, to no relief.

If you need help, there are family, friends, coworkers, even a phone call can be a lifeline- it just takes a moment to reach out.

Be there for each other.

!TRIGGER WARNING!

#MoveOver awareness month. Please move over for first responders.

Do you ever want people to just move over?

So do first responders. As part of #MoveOver Awareness Month, we are releasing a short video that depicts everyday scenarios where you just want someone to move out of your way. Our hope is that portraying these real-life scenarios will remind drivers to slow down and move over for first responders and service workers.

So this month, please join us in reminding drivers to slow down and move over for first responders and service workers. It just might save a life.
