 Franconia Officers Undercover Near You

Undercover Police patch

            During this season of holiday cheer, Franconia officers are on the lookout for those attempting to dampen the shopping season. A select group of officers, known as the RAT Team (Retail Anti-Theft), is assigned to patrol shopping areas within the district in search of those who may be attempting to steal from retailers and shoppers.

            You may notice these officers, or you may not. Some are uniformed and in marked vehicles in order to deter crime and promote safety. However, many times they are patrolling on foot, posing as an average shopper. They walk around in stores and in parking lots. Their goal is to ensure the safety of shoppers in our area and the safeguarding of property.

            Please call 703-691-2131 if you see anyone behaving suspiciously. You are not required to give your name or speak to an officer in person, but we want to identify those who may pose any threat to persons or property.

            The officers of the Franconia District would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
