The Fairfax County Police Association (FCPA) represents over 1,000 police officers in Fairfax County, Virginia. Their overall mission is to reach the various goals and objectives for the men and women in the police force. Unity is very important to them because technically they are a family. Most of them spend more time with each other than their actual families so it is important to have a close bond. It makes policing much better when they are operating from a place of love, compassion, and understanding. During times of crisis, the association is able to respond to members and their families to assist where they can. The FCPA also provides benefits to police offers and support staff. They are able to be the standard for what an association should be especially with the negative media narrative surrounding police as a whole in this country.
With the FCPA being a not-for-profit organization, it relies on donations to continue to help the men and women of the Fairfax County Police Department and the communities that they serve. The donations received make it possible for them to continue bringing people in the communities together along with promoting positivity and kindness. We need organizations like this to change the negative stereotypes of police officers in America. Easterns Automotive Group (Eastern Motors) is one of the DMV’s premier car dealerships offering 7 locations throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Since Easterns started over 30 years ago, they have always been a company that is big on philanthropy and finding ways to better the community. Joel Bassam, Director of Marketing at Easterns, presented the FCPA with a donation of $1,000 to continue their great work uniting not only the police department but also people in the community.
