A MESSAGE FROM SHERIFF MOSIER April 28, 2017
On behalf of all of us at the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, I hope you and your family are eager to say farewell to winter and welcome a return of spring to the Commonwealth. Of course many Virginia residents and their families will be taking to the roadways, enjoying the change of season, and exploring all of the wonderful family oriented events, parks, and scenery we have to offer. So I encourage drivers to be extra vigilant, especially as this time of year brings many out-of-state visitors to our area.
Please remember: Courtesy, Caution and Commonsense are the most important rules of the road!
If you’re traveling out of town on vacation, there are some simple steps to take to keep your property safe. You can make your house appear like someone is always home. Your neighbors can help play a critical role by taking out your trash containers or mowing your lawn if you’re planning to be gone for a long time. Others steps you can take include leaving a second car in your driveway, turning off the ringers on your phones, and setting timers on lights, radios, and TVs.
In addition, there are preventative steps you can take to ensure your family has an enjoyable and stress-free vacation.
• Carry your purse close to your body, with your wallet secured in an inside pocket.
• Do not travel with large sums of money.
• Avoid displaying expensive cameras, jewelry, or luggage.
• Park in well-lit areas.
• Try to blend into the crowd.
• Provide family members with a map of your destination with the name and telephone number of where you are staying.
Of course the goal of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office is to provide the highest level of service to our community and to promote public safety. As always I urge you to help Fauquier County’s law enforcement efforts by reporting crimes and suspicious activity when you see them so that we can do our very best to keep this community a safe place to work, play, live, and raise our families.
Once again, my door is always open to everyone. I want to know what you consider important and necessary to keep ours a safe community.
I deeply appreciate your continued support!
Robert P. Mosier
Sheriff, Fauquier County
Working together, law enforcement and our local communities will make a positive impact for the future.
