About Fairfax County Crime Solvers:
Fairfax County Crime Solvers is a community-oriented program involving citizens, the business community, news media and the Fairfax County Police Department working together in the fight against crime. The Crime Solvers Board is comprised of a group of citizens who pay cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and indictment of any person or persons who commit crimes in Fairfax County or to the capture of a wanted person.
Crime Solvers is not run by the Fairfax County Police Department.
