Fairfax Introduces Online Volunteer System

Fairfax County introduces its new volunteer management system - paving the way for much easier navigation of county volunteer opportunities. Now as a volunteer you can manage all your county "jobs" with a click of a mouse. It's a one-stop-shop for volunteering. Now those interested can visit volunteer.fairfaxcounty.gov, fill out one application and search for opportunities that meet their interests by geographic location, dates, type of people, or program type. The system allows for family volunteering, group volunteering, opportunities for students needing service hours and even court-mandated volunteering. It also allows users to view positions from a variety of agencies (from Animals to Zombie Disaster Preparedness), track their hours, and review upcoming and past volunteer jobs.



Police Partners With the Community

One unique way to become more become more involved in your neighborhood with your Fairfax County Police Department by joining your local FCPD Citizen Advisory Committees (CAC). Meetings are held at your police station each month. (See schedule for this month)

CACs enhance communication between residents and local FCPD police districts. Members learn about significant safety matters in their neighborhoods, and are encouraged to bring any issues or questions to the attention of local police commanders. This month, in recognition of National Preparedness Month, the CAC's are focusing on Emergency Preparedness and Fairfax Alerts.

Learn more about your community; become a CAC member!
