Join our Office of Emergency Management (OEM) at the upcoming Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) meetings to learn about Fairfax Alerts and emergency preparedness. You’ll also have a chance to win an emergency car kit from State Farm at each meeting held at each of the eight police district stations.
- Mason District, Sept.2
- Mount Vernon District, Sept. 9
- Franconia District, Sept. 17
- Reston District, Sept. 18
- Fair Oaks District, Sept. 30
- West Springfield District, Oct. 7
- McLean District, Oct. 16

CACs enhance communication between residents and our police department and offer you a chance to dialogue with members of your local police district. Members are kept informed about significant safety matters in their neighborhoods and are encouraged to bring any issues or questions to the attention of local police commanders.
