Getting Rid of an Old Car?
Donate it to the FCPD
Do you have a vehicle that is in working condition that you no longer want or need? Would you like to help your public safety community and receive a tax deduction at the same time? Consider donating your vehicle to the Fairfax County Police Department.
Every year, the agency uses around 20 cars to help train and prepare officers for the rigors of police work. Your car could be used as a faux suspect’s get-away car, helping officers with their precision pursuit driving techniques. Later, when the car is no longer in driving condition, it will be cut up (training how to cut into crashed cars), blown up (training for our Explosive Ordinance Officers) or shot (used as a prop in an active shooter scenario). Nothing will go to waste and your valuable contribution will serve many constructive purposes.
For more information on how to donate your vehicle or if you have questions please contact MPO Tom Beckman at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course, 703-818-1924.
