About your Crime Prevention Unit

Under PFC Gerhard'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.

Car Seat Checks

Car Seat Installation

The Sully District Station conducts car seat inspections twice a month from 5:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. We encourage parents to install the seat prior to arriving. Officers will inspect the car seat as well as provide education on how to properly fit your child in your car seat. This free service is on a first come, first serve basis as only the first thirty five vehicles will be inspected so we can ensure every parent receives the proper training. Please contact the Sully District Station at 703-814-7000 x5140 for upcoming inspection dates. Cancellations may occur last minute due to inclement weather!

Every adult plays an important role in addressing bullying and making schools safe. What is bulling? The U.S. Department of Health defines bullying as an aggressive behavior that is intended to cause harm or distress, occurs repeatedly over time and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Bullying happens in many different ways. From physical bullying, verbal bullying, emotional bullying, sexual bullying and cyberbullying. Bullying has been happening for decades, but has recently been brought to the forefront of our society's consciousness. Tragedies in schools across the country have led to increased awareness and scientific research into the psychological damages caused by bullying. Never think of bullying as just "kids being kids". Bullying is a serious problem. Every child deserves to grow up in a safe and comfortable school environment. Remember, children are often reluctant to talk to adults about bullying because they are ashamed. Praise your child for being brave enough to tell you what is going on. Practice what you child can say to a bully and that it is okay to report it to a trusted adult. Remember to ask questions. By engaging your child you can find out where it happened, who was involved and what happened. Comfort your child by offering verbal support as well as non-verbal support (nodding your head). If the bullying continues, be prepared to inform the school to prevent further harm. Be open to working with school authorities and/or teachers to address the issue. Together we can stop bullying!

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014: Cons and Scams Prevention

1. Check first with my parents, guardians, or other trusted adults before going anywhere, helping anyone, accepting anything or getting into a car.

2. I take a friend with me when going places or playing outside.

3. I tell people NO! if they try to touch me or hurt me. It's okay for me to stand up for myself.

4. I tell my trusted adult if anything makes me feel sad, scared or confused.

Sometime there are people who trick or hurt others. No one has the right to do that to you. So use these rules and remmeber, you are strong, smart and have the right to be safe, ALWAYS!
