Don’t fall for the grandparent scam! You’ve probably received a scam call or two, but when you hear a voice that sounds like it might be your grandchild in distress, it’s a game changer. If you get a call from someone claiming to be your grandchild or someone who is speaking on their behalf, like an attorney or doctor, and they are demanding money, slow down and don’t make a rushed decision. Scammers will often try to pressure you into making a quick payment in the form of pre-paid gift cards and wire transfers. We know you want to rush to help, but remember:
• Slow down! Stay Calm. Ask yourself, does this seem legitimate?
• Hang up! Call your grandchild or another family member to verify their whereabouts.
• Never give out any personal identifying information such as bank account or credit card numbers to anyone who calls you on the phone.
• If they’re asking for payment with gift cards of any kind, it’s likely a scam!
• If you believe you or a loved one have been scammed, file a report with our Financial Crimes Online Reporting (FiCOR) system - https://bit.ly/2U8hVXE
If you have grandparents in your life, we encourage you to take the time to discuss phone scams and share these basic prevention tips.

As we celebrate Black History Month together, we want to share some of the people that make Fairfax County Police Department great. We are a diverse agency, and we proudly serve a diverse community. The diversity of our sworn and professional staff contributes to FCPD’s mission & makes a difference in our community.

Kerene Gordon is the Director of Financial Resources. She was born in Jamaica & migrated to the United States in 1982. Her family always fostered education & so all six children were expected to not only finish high school, but the normal order of progression was to also move forward to higher educational learning which all six children did.

Kerene completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Economics & Computer Science with a minor in Business Administration from Rockford College. She then went on to complete an MBA in International Finance from American University.

Kerene joined FCPD in Dec. 2010, as a Budget Analyst & backup for the Director. Kerene was promoted to the position of Director of the Financial Resources Division in 2012, & still occupies that role today. Kerene brought with her over 40 years of budgeting, accounting & financial experience to the department.

When Kerene is not working, she enjoys visiting Jamaica, family, & traveling all over the world to experience new cultures.

Kerene truly loves her role at the FCPD, she has built a great team of professionals. Together, they continue a record of maintaining a fiscally responsible budget that has never exceeded the budget given to FCPD by the County in the 10 ½ years that she has been Director. Kerene loves the feeling of “family” that is felt in the police department & loves the fact that she can be an asset to the department in procuring and budgeting for all items that they need to operate as one of the safest counties in the entire country.

Left turns are inherently more dangerous than a right-turn. A few reasons why include:
• Your vehicle is exposed to cross traffic
• The a-pillar of a vehicle can create blind spots in the driver’s vision
• Left turns require drivers to exert more mental and physical effort

Here are a few tips to help make turning left a little safer:
• Only turn left from designated left turn lanes
• Obey traffic signs and signals
• Always use your signal to alert other drivers of your intent to turn
• Make sure oncoming lanes are clear
• Check for pedestrians or bicyclists before turning

988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline. 988 serves as a universal entry point so that no matter where you live in the U.S., you can easily access 24/7 emotional support.

When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing National Su***de Prevention Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect the caller to resources if necessary.

The Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) remains available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.

15/01/2023

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of accidents leading to injury and even death. To combat the epidemic, states across the country have implemented laws targeting distracted driving habits. It is important to remember that even if states do not have laws directly related to distracted driving, the act of driving distracted leads to driving behavior that is illegal, such as reckless driving and other traffic violations.

Virginia law prohibits drivers from holding cell phones or any other wireless communication devices while driving except in a driver emergency or when the vehicle is lawfully parked or stopped. Texting while driving is also illegal in Virginia and is considered a primary offense. A texting while driving conviction carries a $125 fine for the first offense and a $250 fine for the second and subsequent offenses.

In 2021, more than 20,000 crashes statewide were attributed to distracted driving, which resulted in 117 deaths and 11,297 injuries. Drivers taking their eyes off the road was the number one cause of distracted driving crashes in Virginia last year. Cell phone use, looking at roadside incidents and navigation devices were other top causes of distracted driving crashes.

Do your part to limit distracted driving.

Help prevent auto theft! Please keep in mind the below safety tips to help keep your vehicles and property safe:

• Be aware of your surroundings, especially in garages, parking lots, and gas stations.
• Close and lock all windows and doors when you park. To be safe, double-click the lock button on the key fob or check the door handles to make sure the vehicle is locked.
• Park in well-lit areas.
• Never leave your vehicle running, even for a short duration of time. This is a perfect opportunity for a thief to steal your vehicle.
• Do not leave your keys, key fobs, or valet keys in your vehicle. This includes house keys and keys to other vehicles.
• Ensure your vehicle is turned off when leaving it unattended. Some vehicles with keyless ignition systems can be driven for extended periods of time, even if the key fob is not inside the vehicle.
• Keep information, such as the make, model, model year, license plate, and Vehicle Identification Number easily accessible in the event your vehicle is stolen.

Report suspicious activity to the non-emergency line at 703-691-2131. In the event of an emergency, dial 9-1-1.

Utility Scams: Your phone rings and the caller ID indicates it’s your power company, cable provider, water company or gas provider. When you answer, the caller says your account is behind and demands immediate payment through a credit card or pre-paid debit card or your utility will be shut off. STOP, this is likely a scam! Before you take action, remember these tips:

• Slow down! Ask yourself, does this seem legitimate?
• Scammers often make their caller ID appear real to try and trick you.
• Legitimate companies will not request payment in prepaid cards.
• Verify your account information online and call your service provider directly to confirm whether or not a payment is due.
• Do not call any other number or visit any other website given to you during the scam call.
• If you are being pressured aggressively to pay a bill, hang up!

If you believe you or a loved one have been scammed, file a report with our Financial Crimes Online Reporting (FiCOR) system - https://bit.ly/2U8hVXE.
