Fairfax Police Aim to Stop Violations at Scott’s Run Nature Preserve

(Updated at 2:45 p.m.) The Fairfax County Police Department plans to crack down on violations at Scott’s Run Nature Preserve this summer.

The police department posted today (Friday) on Facebook:

In the span of a just a few hours this past Saturday, our officers responded to multiple calls at Scott’s Run Nature Preserve – arresting six people and serving summons to another nine. This is a beautiful park with a lot to offer for our community. We’re reminding you that there’s NO excuse to break posted park rules at Scott’s Run. That includes engaging in prohibited activities such as swimming, littering, illegal and underage drinking, trespassing after dark, etc.

FCPD will work with the Fairfax County Park Authority during the summer to enforce the park’s rules.

This is not the first time the police department has had to step in to help with enforcement at the park.

Lt. Jason Allegra said in a Fairfax County video from 2017 that Fairfax County police helped enforce violations by patrolling the park daily.
