Prince William Police step up security at area mosques


News release from Prince William County Police

Statement from Prince William County Police:

Outreach to our Community: The horrendous events at the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in New Zealand have shocked and saddened all of us. We will stand together in strength and unity with those communities as our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. There have been no threats of violence toward any places of worship in Prince William County; however, we understand you may be concerned. We have increased presence at places of worship throughout the county to provide support and security. United, we will work to heal and protect each other as we move forward.

Should you see any suspicious activity, past occurrence or non-life threatening, please call our Communications Center at 703-792-6500.

If there is an immediate threat to life or property or a crime in progress, dial 9-1-1.
