A MESSAGE FROM SHERIFF MOSIER July 17, 2019
On behalf of all of us at the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, I hope you and your family are busy enjoying your summer in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
This summer, I want to make sure you’re armed with some important tips about what you and your family can do to stay safe, while enjoying all of the wonderful activities that our great state has to offer.
If you’re enjoying time outdoors, be sure to keep cool and stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and seek shade during the midday hours when ultraviolet rays are at their greatest. And if you or family members plan on going swimming, make sure to swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards. Actively supervise children and non-swimmers, even if lifeguards are present. Be sure to wear a life jacket if you go boating. Of course, no matter where you travel this summer, it’s always a good idea to keep a well-stocked first aid kit in your car, since accidents can happen anywhere.
Please remember not to broadcast your travel plans all over social media. Thieves will use Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites to target the homes of people who post their travel plans. Don’t be an easy target. Protect your home by locking all windows and closing most of the shades. Put a timer on some of your lights. Ask a neighbor to keep an eye on your house while picking up your mail and newspaper. You can also contact us to be placed on a premise check list by calling the non-emergency number: (540) 347-3300.
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 mentioned above. If you have any other concerns about crime prevention or public safety efforts in our community, I’d like to hear from you.
I deeply appreciate your continued support!
Robert P. Mosier
Sheriff, Fauquier County Sheriff's Office
Working together, law enforcement and our local communities will make a positive impact for the future.
