Fairfax County Communities of Trust Committee (COTC) is a diverse citizens group focused on strengthening and building positive relationships between public safety agencies and the communities they serve. It was established in 2014 in response to nationwide concerns about policing following the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
