Latch Key Program

Children who are given the responsibility of having house keys and letting themselves into their homes sometimes lose them. Through the Latch Key Program, parents can provide the police department with their child's name, age, home phone number, home address, and school attending either through a form obtained through the police department or by sending this information via email. The forms can be turned in either at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School which is located at the following address:
601 South Oak St.
Falls Church, VA 22046
You can also turn them in at the police department located at the following address:
300 Park Ave.
Falls Church, VA 22046

The department will collect your form and issue your child a red, coded key tag. Found keys with these tags on them can be placed in any mailbox and will be returned to the police department. An officer will notify the parents when the keys have been recovered. For more information, please contact the department at 703-248-5056(TTY 711) or via email.
