Fairfax County Gang Prevention Council Coordinator Appointed

On Friday, Feb. 25, the appointment of Robert A. Bermingham Jr., MPA as the coordinator of the Fairfax County Coordinating Council on Gang Prevention was announced at the Fairfax County Gang Prevention Summit. Bermingham will coordinate the development and implementation of interdepartmental plans, strategies, policies and communication related to the county’s gang prevention efforts.

Bermingham has worked for Fairfax County for 17 years and is currently a probation supervisor with the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. In that position, he supervises 16 professional staff that provide probation services to juveniles. Bermingham has been with the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court for his entire career with the county and has considerable experience working with juvenile offenders. He serves on the Fairfax County Gang Assessment Team, the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice Gang Response Team and as a resource for the court concerning gangs.

Bermingham holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Marymount University and a master’s degree in public administration from George Mason University. He currently serves as president of the Virginia Juvenile Justice Association and is a member of the American Correctional Association, the Fairfax Friends of the Court, the Fairfax County Gang Response Steering Committee and the Fairfax County Character Counts Task Force. He received the Virginia Juvenile Justice Association Meritorious Service Award in 2001.

“We recognize that while the county’s overall crime rate is the lowest of the 50 largest jurisdictions in the country, the rise of gang activity in our region must be addressed with a proactive, aggressive and comprehensive program of prevention,” said Anthony H. Griffin, county executive. “We are very fortunate to have someone with Bob’s expertise and experience with young people to guide this effort.”

Bermingham’s appointment is effective Monday, March 7, at a salary of $80,418.
