A MESSAGE FROM SHERIFF MOSIER July 23, 2018
On behalf of all of us at the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, I hope you and your family are busy enjoying your summer. While summertime brings lots of opportunity to explore our state’s beaches, parks, and enjoy outdoor activities, it also brings some extra risks.
Whether you’re working or playing outside in the summer, anybody not accustomed to the heat is at risk for a heat-related illness.
Take steps to protect yourself:
Wear appropriate clothing, including a wide-brimmed hat, take frequent water breaks, apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 and never leave kids or pets unattended in a vehicle.
Summer is also a time when opportunist thieves seek out property left unattended and unsecured, such as bicycles, lawn items, garden tools, car keys, to name a few.
So to prevent these “Porch Pirates” from being successful please, ensure your property is secured, especially overnight, and remember to close and lock your windows and doors. It just takes a second for a thief to steal something which has been left lying unattended, and by taking a few moments to ensure property is secure, this can significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to such a crime.
I want you to know it is my privilege to serve as your Sheriff, and I urge you to contact my office if you have any questions about the subjects we discuss in this newsletter or any other concerns about crime prevention or public safety efforts in our community.
I deeply appreciate your continued support!
Robert P. Mosier
Fauquier County Sheriff's Office
Working together, law enforcement and our local communities will make a positive impact for the future.
