Franconia Officers Hosted Personal Safety Seminars

            To promote an added level of safety for our residents this holiday season, officers of the Franconia District held two successful personal safety seminars on December 3 (English) and December 5 (Spanish) at the Richard Byrd Library located at 7250 Commerce Street. The focus of the seminars was to empower individuals to protect themselves and be aware of their surroundings while in public.

            Based on the turnout and positive feedback, the Franconia Station hopes to continue future sessions of these free safety classes. In the meantime, observe the following safety tips at all times:

  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Look around.
  • If you feel someone is acting suspicious, trust your instincts.
  • Walk with confidence! Keep your head up.
  • Avoid unlit parking areas or other remote areas.
  • When possible, travel with others.
  • Avoid carrying a purse. If you are carrying one, hold it firmly in front of you.
  • Always let a family member know where you are and when you intend to return.
  • If working late with other colleagues, park together, and leave together.
  • Do not use headphones which take away your ability to hear what is happening around you.

            If you see suspicious persons or activity taking place, please call 703-691-2131 immediately.
