The 2016 Crime Data for Fairfax County is posted on the county police web site: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/police/crime/statistics/2016stats.html
Overall, there was a 2% increase in crime in 2016 as compared to 2015. This was due in part to significant increases in narcotics offenses, which saw the largest gains. Colonel Edwin C. Roessler Jr., Chief of Police, says, “The mission of the Fairfax County Police Department is to prevent and fight crime through community engagement and information sharing, and it is this partnership that keeps Fairfax County the safest jurisdiction of its size in the United States.”
