It's 2 am. Kids are woken up FC police just say make sure doors locked.

I have my arsenal ready now but I really need to sleep. If this is about some Korean or Spanish slap down I am going back to bed.

I think they are by Burger King getting ready to search a house for someone.

They were escorting the day's stale donuts from the shelves at Giant to the dumpster. The area was cordoned off and the color guard was summoned to give them a good sendoff.

Congratulations, you too have gotten a helicopter visit from the FCPD!

Really, they just pick a spot in the county and fly around over it for twenty or thirty minutes, maybe longer if enough people haven't been roused from their beds to annoy the shit out of the homeowners. That's why they're up there, don't let anyone fool you with stories about chasing thieves or other alleged suspects. Oh, and they try to do it only at night, more annoying that way.

Search for other helicopter threads, there are many, all with very similar stories. Never any real credible evidence of a criminal, just a noisy helicopter waking up the residents.

It was serious. Really serious. Some kids were playing mailbox baseball so the police authorized shoot to kill orders.

I live over by the pool I woke up to a police officer yelling "Stop Police." I looked out my window and the officer was chasing a guy with his gun raised. The guy stopped and was arrested, a couple minutes later the helicopter was flying around and didn't leave for about an hour. The scary part is when I woke up this morning my back fence was open. I didnt leave it open and really never open it.

I just moved into this neighborhood a couple weeks ago. Was I naive to assume this is a safe area? I see broken beer and liquor bottles in random areas when I walk my dog so I can only imagine what goes on out there at night. I guess the wife will be open carrying during late night dog walks.

I guess you should walk a neighborhood you are considering to live in before you actually move there.

The neighborhood is fine, been here 5 years and never had a problem. Sometimes the high school kids drink near the pool and I see broken bottles there and on the path. A few of the neighbors call the cops when they see it happening and the cops come and chase them away.

For future fly overs.... If you are curious, scared, or alone when FCPD Flys over your house or neighborhood all you need to do is call the Fairfax County Police Non-emergency number at 703-691-2131 and explain that a police helicopter is flying over your house and do you need to be concerned. They will tell you exactly what is going on and what precautions, if any you need to take. Hope this helps.

This afternoon I was over by traderjoes when something happened at the post office. Next thing I know police every where as I drive home. To the person who just moved here, I have lived here 20 years and life happens but Centreville n Clifton are still a good community! Sometimes people just suck!

Do you know what happened at the post office? Helicopters circled for at least 45min.

A local contractor has been hiring illegals and then murdering them at the end of the job to avoid paying them. FCPD got a tip that the bodies were dumped at this location.
