Hi folks!
The press release below was forwarded to me from Andrew of CERT 15. As we all know, budgets are tightening in the county due to the current economic situation. The county police department is holding a series of forums around the county to discuss the programs of most interest and usefulness to county residents. You may wish to attend one of these forums to voice your opinions and thoughts.

Safe Community Forums: Your Chance to Speak Up

The Fairfax County Police Department is hosting a second series of Safe
Community Forums beginning Thursday, October 16 at West Springfield High School,
Spartan Hall, 6100 Rolling Road, Springfield from 7 until 9 p.m. These forums provide
an opportunity for the public to offer valuable feedback on the services and programs
delivered by the Fairfax County Police Department.

The police department is seeking innovative ideas on how they can best provide
public safety services for the residents of Fairfax County as they plan for the future. As
budgets tighten, the public plays a critical role in letting police know which public safety
services are most important to them.

In addition to the October 16 Springfield forum, others will be held:

Wednesday, October 22, Lynbrook Elementary School, 5801 Backlick Road,
Springfield, 7-9 p.m.

Thursday, October 23, Fair Oaks Church, 4601 West Ox Road, Fairfax, 7-9 p.m.

**There will be Spanish interpreters available at all sites.
For more information, please call 703/246-2253.
