The Eye on Crime Newsletter is now available online. If you are able to receive your newsletter online, please contact the Crime Prevention Office via email at or give us a call at (703) 922-8263. We are hoping to send out the majority of newsletters via email in order to save money (postage and printing costs) which can be put to better uses, and the time it takes to do the copying, labeling and stamping of each issue that goes through the US Postal Service system. You will also receive the newsletter in a more timely fashion, since electrons flow faster than mail trucks drive. And if delivered in inclement weather, it will not get wet. Thanks for your assistance
