Watch out for scams! In the latest scam targeting Fairfax residents, the fraudulent caller claims he is a Sheriff's deputy named Lt. John Lewis. He says you missed a court date, and he needs you to "come down to the station" to see a subpoena, supposedly with your signature on it. The Sheriff's Office will never call you and make threats, claiming that you missed court or jury duty, failed to pay a utility bill or owe the IRS for unpaid taxes. HANG UP! Even if the caller leaves you a message, DO NOT CALL BACK. Do not meet them anywhere. Do not give them the whereabouts of anyone you know. Do not give out personal or financial information! Learn more about scams and how to avoid them: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/watch-out-scams

A year ago, an inmate named Aaron was an original participant in our new Striving to Achieve Recovery (STAR) program. Over time, he proved to be a role model for other participants. Recently, the Sheriff’s Office gave Aaron a new opportunity on his path to recovery. By day, he works on the Community Labor Force. In the evenings, he holds Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous meetings for his fellow inmates. Sheriff Kincaid: “We are equipping inmates with resources and a positive, productive routine so they will have a better chance for success in their post-incarceration future.” Read more: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/star-program-leads-new-opportunity-path-recovery.
