What if I need to contact the Fairfax Police Department and I either don’t speak English, or I am hearing or speech impaired?

The Fairfax Police Department is equipped with T.D.D. devices for communicating with the hearing and/or speech impaired via both 9-1-1 and the non-emergency numbers. Language translation service is also available on a limited basis.

When language translation is needed via 9-1-1, your call can be transferred directly to a translator for. The dispatcher will stay on the line and tell the translator what questions to ask, and then listen as the translator obtains the answers and relays that back to the dispatcher.
