FAIRFIELD, NJ — Fairfield Mayor James Gasparini encourages Fairfield residents and businesses to support the newly formed Fairfield Police Foundation.

At the Fairfield Township mayor and council meeting, Gasparini announced to the public that a “Fairfield Police Foundation was recently formed as a ‘not-for-profit’ way to provide needed funds for the Fairfield Police Department outside of the municipal budget.”

“The foundation is recognized as a 501©(3) organization and contributions are 100-percent tax deductible,” he said. “All contributions directly benefit the officers of the Fairfield Police Department.”

The goal of the foundation is “to help provide local police with items that may not be affordable to the township in light of the state’s imposed caps on municipal budgets.” Gasparini said the funding is reserved "strictly for continued training classes for officers and for the purchase of police and medical equipment and related items.”

The mayor also reminded the public that police officers are the first responders when a critical emergency threatens the lives of residents and business employees. He added that they are the first to respond “during some of the most extreme weather situations, like floods, snowstorms and hurricanes and do so 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

The foundation is managed by a board of trustees that are residents or business representatives from the township. It was reported that several of the surrounding West Essex police departments currently have police foundations, and that they are extremely successful.

During the meeting, the mayor and council urged all residents and businesses to “support the newly created Fairfield Police Foundation by contributing whatever they can, if only a small amount of money.”

Gasparini said that all contributors will receive a Fairfield Police Foundation vehicle sticker that shows you are a supporter of the foundation. He thanked everyone for their continued support of the police department and thanked the members of the police department for the great job that they do every day.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
