A Special Thanks to Franconia’s Volunteers
On Friday, April 8, the Fairfax County Police Department recognized the men and women of the Auxiliary Police Officer Program (APO), Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) Program and the Chaplains Unit. Throughout the year, all three volunteer programs provide the Fairfax County Police Department and the citizens of Fairfax County with valuable resources. In 2010, the programs provided the following service hours: APO Program 39,764 hours; VIPS Program 20,063 hours; and the Chaplains Unit 2,259 hours.
The Franconia Police District Station is particularly proud of the accomplishments and contributions made by the APOs and VIPS of the station. The APOs are in the community with patrol officers assisting in active cases or at DWI checkpoints. The additional man-power is essential to the successful completion of these events. The VIPS have made countless contributions to daily administrative tasks required by the police department. Most notably, John Sherburne creates and publishes posters and handouts and maintains video monitors and a sign board to help the Franconia Police District Station communicate with its residents.
The following Franconia Station volunteers were recognized this year:
John Sherburne – VIPS of the Year (Administration) and 2,000 hours of service
Reverend Philip Bishop – Commendation Certificate
