D.C. group offers support to Fairfax police watchdogs

The District's Office of Police Complaints, a civilian agency which handles complaints about police conduct in Washington, has offered its assistance to Fairfax County as it considers whether to launch a similar entity in Virginia's largest county. A citizens group which formed in Fairfax last year, the Virginia Citizens Coalition for Police Accountability, has been lobbying for an independent agency to monitor the Fairfax police in the wake of fatal shootings and traffic accidents involving Fairfax officers. After the group actively pushed the county's Board of Supervisors to consider the idea, the board turned to Fairfax Police Chief David M. Rohrer for his thoughts. The chief said last May he would look into a process for how such a review mechanism might be structured and report back to the board.

$2M Culosi settlement finalized

In an empty federal courtroom in Alexandria Tuesday morning, the family of Salvatore J. Culosi formally settled their lawsuit against Fairfax County in exchange for a payment of $2 million from the county, for the 2006 shooting death of Culosi outside his townhouse in the Fair Oaks area. The case arose after a Fairfax SWAT team descended on Culosi to arrest him on Jan. 24, 2006, after he allegedly had made a series of bets on football games with an undercover detective. Officer Deval V. Bullock leapt out of his sport-utility vehicle, yelled "Police," and then fired one shot from his .45-caliber pistol which entered Culosi's side and pierced his aorta. Culosi, 37, was unarmed. Bullock said his door struck him on his left side, causing him to accidentally fire once with his right hand.
