The McLean Citizens Association hosted a Virtual Public Safety Forum on November 17, 2021, that featured Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Chief John Butler, and Fairfax County Police Department Chief Kevin Davis. The Chiefs discussed their top challenges, priorities, and new Initiatives undertaken. Their most important challenges were in the areas of hiring, retention, employee morale and wellness. The Chiefs identified how the Police and Fire Services are being impacted by the growth in Tysons, and actions taken to assure that Fire and Police Service levels in McLean were not diminished. Chief Davis talked about the School Resource Officer Program and the role it plays in keeping our children safe. The Chiefs were forthcoming and sincere in responding to a wide range of questions on topics that were of great interest to the audience. A video of the event is available in the MCA's Video Library.
