In February of 2008, The members of the Fairfield Police Department held a Town Meeting in O'Connor Hall at Saint Thomas More Church. Nearly 300 residents attended and there was a very good exchange of information between the police and the residents. The two main topics of discussion that were issues of concern for the majority of the residents were Crime Prevention andTraffic Safety. Before the conclusion of the meeting that night, Chief Voelker asked residents to sign up to join two committees he was forming to continue to address concerns of the community in these two areas.
Initially, the meetings for Crime Prevention and Traffic safety were held on separate nights once a month to inform residents of the enforcement initiatives that were done for the previous month and to listen to the additional concerns and questions that residents had in each of these areas. By the end of 2008, it became apparent that the main nucleus of each committee were the same people, so starting in 2009 the meetings were combined and held on the third Tuesday of every month at the Fairfield Community Center, 376 Hollywood Ave.
These meetings are open to all residents and members of the business community. The importance of these monthly meetings to discuss Traffic and Crime Prevention issues and information is more critical than ever. These meetings will of course continue in 2013. The dates for the meetings are as follows:
January 15th February 19th
March 19th April 16th
May 21st June 18th
July 16th August 20th
September 17th October 15th
November 19th December 17th
All of these meetings will be held at the Fairfield Pio Costa Library, on Hollywood Avenue starting at 7 PM.
