Fairfax County Virginia Police Department
“Our DWI squad had a very proactive and successful year in 2017 with a total of 513 arrests for DWI! Last year was the first full year for our grant-funded DWI squad. This nine-officer unit was created in December of 2016, with the main goal of reducing impaired-related crashes through increased DWI enforcement. The eight officers and one supervisor that comprise this squad were exclusively picked due to their commitment to highway safety and their aptitude in identifying and apprehending impaired drivers. This unit is assigned to the Traffic Division of the Operations Support Bureau and are deployed throughout the county based on statistical data, citizen requests, and requests from station commanders. The squad’s equipment and salaries are federally funded through a grant and overseen by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. Its members receive advanced training in DWI detection and drug recognition.
Overall the Department had a total of 2,139 DWI arrests last year, an increase from the two previous years, 1,957 arrests in 2016 and 1,841 arrests in 2015. The Fairfax County Police Department is committed to the safety of motorists in the County. As we move into 2018, we will strive to make our roads even safer through proactive enforcement and education.”

Woman Charged with DWI After Crashing into Chief’s Cruiser to Appear in Court
Sully Police District – Chief Roessler will appear in Fairfax County General District Court, Traffic Division tomorrow, May 3, at 9:30. He will be there as the Commonwealth’s witness in the case involving Christie A. Edgar, the Centreville woman who crashed into the Chief’s police cruiser on December 12, 2016, and was subsequently charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
During this type of court proceeding, the defendant would be asked to enter a plea; guilty, not guilty, or no contest. The third plea, no contest, simply means that a defendant is not pleading guilty, but acknowledges that the Commonwealth has enough evidence for a conviction. Depending upon the plea, the judge would hear testimony from both parties and then render a decision and impose a sentence.

Chief Roessler Injured in Crash; Woman Charged with DWI
Sully Police District – Colonel Edwin C. Roessler Jr. is back to work this morning after he was involved in a collision in Centreville in which the other driver was charged with driving drunk. The Chief was driving his unmarked police cruiser, a 2017 Ford Explorer, southbound on Lee Highway at around 8:40 p.m. on Monday, December, 12. He stopped for a red traffic signal at Lee Highway and Stone Road. A Nissan SUV then rear-ended his cruiser. The Chief immediately reported the crash to our dispatchers, using the police radio in his cruiser. Fortunately, he only had minor injuries and was taken to Inova Fair Oaks Hospital for evaluation and treatment. He was released late last night. The driver of the SUV, 40-year-old Christie A. Edgar, of Centreville, was arrested at the scene. She was taken to the Adult Detention Center (ADC) and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. She was released from the ADC at around 9:30 this morning.
A 48-year-old man who was a passenger in Edgar’s SUV was released at the scene.
