What you need to know about panhandling
Every year the Fairfax County Police Department receives hundreds of calls related to panhandling. The calls range from traffic issues to concerns about panhandler safety to fears about a suspicious person at an intersection.
Panhandling can be found in most areas of our county. While we may get a good feeling by providing money to a panhandler, the reality is that panhandlers who are truly in need require more resources than small amounts of money.
