Effective immediately, personal visiting with inmates at the Adult Detention Center and Alternative Incarceration Branch is suspended until further notice to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). All inmates will be given two free 15-minute phone calls per week in lieu of personal visiting so they can keep in touch with their loved ones.

03/17/2020

We have cancelled our March 21 child safety seat inspection event to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Manufacturers of safety seats have online videos demonstrating how to properly install seats as does the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please regularly check our website for the status of future safety seat events. www.fairfaxcounty.gov/sheriff/community-free-child-safety-seat-inspections

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!

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.
