We were happy to help the Fairfax County Police Department's Victim Services Division with its first ever #OperationGiveThanks to make sure child victims of crime were not forgotten this Thanksgiving. Families experiencing hardships due to the financial strain of COVID and being a victim of crime received winter coats, hats, gloves and a Thanksgiving food basket. Thanks to our community partners: Communities of Trust and Sojourn Church!

Shopping FOR children instead of WITH children was the order of the day for our 29th annual Shop with the Sheriff. Historically, the agency has taken about 40 children from area homeless shelters on a back-to-school shopping trip at Target in Burke. To reduce the potential for exposing children and their families to COVID-19, we created a new way of shopping with the sheriff.

Two deputies had a great time decorating their cruisers and carving pumpkins for the socially distanced Trunk or Treat event with Sully District Police Station. The treats were offered to the 500 pre-registered attendees right before they exited the display area and were delivered to them “fast food drive-thru style.”

SCAM ALERT! A person pretending to be a Fairfax Sheriff's deputy is calling area residents claiming they missed jury duty or another court date and must pay a fine or face arrest. PLEASE HANG UP on these scammers! Do not give out personal information such as your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, passwords or any other identifying information about yourself or your family members. To confirm a jury duty summons, contact the Circuit Court jury duty clerk at 703-246-7816 and press zero. Learn more about avoiding scams: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/watch-out-scams

Fairfax County Inmates Make Masks During Pandemic

Fairfax County inmates in our Alternative Incarceration Branch are making children's masks to meet the growing need in our community. See the story on NBC4 Washington. #FFXstrong

Thousands of masks protecting people in Northern Virginia are coming from a surprising place: the Fairfax County jail. News4’s Julie Carey spoke with some of the dedicated women doing the work.

People in jails have much higher rates of chronic health conditions than the general population, and jails are required to offer medical care for inmates. Behavioral health issues, such as drug and alcohol addiction, are chronic health conditions just like diabetes, heart disease or asthma and can benefit from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Learn what we are doing in the Adult Detention Center with the help of a grant from Washington/Baltimore HIDTA. www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/medication-assisted-treatment-builds-recovery-opportunities-inmates-substance-use-disorders

"I can’t be soothed when I cry because one adult in my home is afraid of the other. I may be less likely to explore because I am afraid." Domestic violence can follow kids for a lifetime. You can help! Provide consistent comfort, stability and routine to an infant. #StepUp4Kids https://bit.ly/3bxo9b9 Fairfax County Department of Family Services

On behalf of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Lt Col Mark Sites presented 2nd Lt James Myles with a Lifesaving Award. When one of his colleagues was clearly choking on food, unable to speak or cough it up and showing signs of panic, James delivered five back blows between the man’s shoulder blades with the heel of his hand. A large piece of food became dislodged, and the man was able to breathe again. Thank you, James, for responding quickly and calmly to save a life! #ValorAwards

Eight of our Sheriff's deputies were among 57 public safety employees from our area who achieved advanced crisis intervention team certification last week. The 50-hour training addressed the core principles of appropriately responding to emergency calls involving individuals experiencing a mental health crisis, a substance use disorder or difficulty with a special need. Class participants learned how to recognize people in crisis, de-escalate situations and encourage people who need treatment or support to access services. The scenario and classroom-based curriculum was delivered in a socially distanced setting at George Mason University and included role playing scenarios as well as expert instruction from behavioral health professionals, advocates and community members. #CIT
