About your Crime Prevention Unit
Under PFC Fruecht's direction, the Crime Prevention Section at the Sully District Station is focused on fostering a close relationship with the community.
The Sully District Crime Prevention Office thanks you in advance for your patience during our current budget struggles. With the reduction of the Crime Prevention Staff and the elimination of the School Education Officer, we cannot continue to provide presentations and / or public appearances like we have in the past. We will continue to focus on our Neighborhood Watch Communities, our liaisons with other homeowners groups and associations, and our partnership with the Citizens Advisory Committee. Requests for others activities will be handled on a case by case basis and we will continue to do our best to deliver superior services in a timely manner.

The way Fairfax County Police Officer Rockie Akhavan sees it, he was just doing his job on the night that an allegedly drunk driver smashed into his patrol cruiser. As for the Good Samaritans who pulled the door off of the mangled police cruiser to pry him out, and comforted the stunned driver and her two small children: "they are the true heroes," Akhavan said.
Fairfax County Police held a small ceremony at the Sully District Station on March 29th to honor Stacey Hawkins, Emily Zetts and Greg Zetts for their help on th eevening of March 11. "Sometimes even our heroes need help," said Captain Ed O'Carroll, the commander of the Sully District Station.
And that was the case when Greg Zetts, a pastor at King of the Nations Christian Fellowship in Maryland, and his daughter Emily Zetts, saw an apparently impaired driver getting onto I-66 that night. "She was speeding 80, 90 mph and almost clipped a couple cars on the way," said Greg, who happens to also be a police chaplain with the Montgomery County Police Department. He said that after the woman almost hit a semi truck, they called 911 and sped up to try and get her tag number. Afterward, they found Akhavan, who was on patrol.
Akhavan quickly left to try and find the driver, but was almost hit by another vehicle, that was moving erratically. Mistakenly believing that this was the drunk driver, he put on his lights and pulled the car over. Akhavan found out too late that the vehicle was forced to move that way because of the impaired driver. As he pulled the car over to the side of the road, the drunk driver smashed into the back of his cruiser, pushing it nearly 80 feet forward, according to police. "I was hit pretty bad," said Akhavan. "I was knocked out."
Horrified, Emily and Greg pulled their car over. Emily heard a child crying and went to check on the other car. Greg tried to help Akhavan out of the car, but found the door damaged and was unable to open it. "That's where I believe it was miraculous," Greg recalled. "I was able to pull the door out." As Emily comforted the children that cold night, Stacey Hawkins also rushed in to help. She comforted the children and covered a young boy with her coat, police said.
Three Virginia State Troopers—Lorenzo Goode, John Yacek and Matthew Ratliff—were the first law enforcement to respond to the scene. They were also honored at the Friday ceremony.
Akhavan escaped with only minor injuries that night, but he is all too aware that he escaped death by a matter of inches.
"I'm just glad that I could go home and see my family and see another day," he said.
Sully Station Pilots New Program
Do you know what impaired driving looks like? Do you want to learn more about the indicators of drunk and drugged driving? Since officers can’t be everywhere all the time, we need your to help make our streets safer. Following the model of the popular Neighborhood Watch program, the goal of DUI Watch is to encourage residents to be more involved in their communities by spotting and reporting suspected drunk or impaired drivers.
All volunteers will be fully training on aspects of early recognition of impaired driving, the dangers of impaired driving and its impact on the community.
Help us patrol our roadways.
The first-ever DUI Watch training session will be Wednesday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sully District Station, 4900 Stonecroft Boulevard, Chantilly, Virginia.
Pre-registration is recommended but not required.
Please contact PFC Fruecht at 703-814-7018 or FCPDSulCPO@Fairfaxcounty.gov with questions or to register.
