In 2017 the Fairfax County Police Association celebrated its 75th anniversary as an organization. As a way of marking this milestone we wanted to provide active and retired members a way to “engrave your name is history”. The Association Hall has plans to replace the existing patio and walkway with engraved pavers.
The pavers will be able to display 4 lines of text and each line can be up to 14 characters (including spaces and punctuation). Here are some examples of paver layouts:
MPO A.B. SMITH
JULY 1, 2017
The cost of each paver is $125 and payments can be made by check or credit card. The project will commence once we have satisfied our minimum order but we anticipate the pavers selling out quickly based on feedback we have already gotten on the project. We only have a finite amount of pavers we can install so seize the opportunity and engrave your name in history so that future officers can reflect on the officers that made this department what it is today.
Below is a link to an order form. Please print as many copies as you need (if you are ordering more than one paver) and then you may be mailed or dropped off at the Association Hall. Payments may also be given to an Association Board member (see website for a list of Board members). We ask that you avoid using the County mail as there is always a chance of losing the payment. As always if you have any question please contact the Association office during normal business hours or contact me directly.
