Statement from Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr.

July 6, 2018 – As a community resident and parent of three children who have spent a majority of their lives navigating a great school system, your Police Department is dedicated to engagement with the Fairfax County Public Schools to provide the safest learning environment in the nation. Over the last few decades, School Resource Officers have continuously been part of the fabric of all middle and high school communities and they enjoy the confidence and trust from all of us as they are passionate and well trained police officers that care about each and every student.


On July 2nd, 2018, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon S. Bulova convened the first School Resource Officer Community Review Committee as an ad hoc committee to review amendments being considered to the revisions of the Fairfax County Memorandum of Understanding that defines the roles and responsibilities of all School Resource Officers.  I fully support the community stakeholder review of the roles of all School Resource Officers and look forward to co-producing a revised Memorandum of Understanding which reflects our common goals of providing the safest learning environment for our students.  Our mutual goals of transparency and trust will be met by sharing critical data and policies to foster robust and informed discussions.  Therefore, as promised at the July 2nd, meeting I have posted the below information to ensure our next few meetings are informed positive discussions to increase safety while protecting legal rights of all in our school community.
