Letters from the Leaders: A Message from the Fairfield Police Department


Dear Community,

As 2016 draws to a close, it gives everyone the opportunity to reflect on events that occurred this past year and the chance to look forward at what we can accomplish and do better in the upcoming year.

As we reflect on 2016, from a national law enforcement perspective, it has been filled with both tragedy and triumph. When times are trying, we all seek the assistance from those closes to us to help us persevere and remain committed and dedicated to our mission.

In Fairfield, our officers have always had the great fortune of having a community that truly respects and supports our efforts in performing all our law enforcement duties—and in 2016, when our officers needed to know it most, our community was there for us.

We would like to thank all of you who—by word or deed—showed your support to the dedicated law enforcement professionals who come to work each day to try and assure that the citizens of this great country are protected and served so they can fully enjoy the freedoms that only the United States of America can provide. Because of your efforts, it has reminded us that those speaking the loudest don’t necessary reflect the majority.

So as we go into 2017, I would like to assure all that the Fairfield Police Department will continue to do everything we can at serving our community and we will always look to improve on how we accomplish this. We may not always be right in everything we do, as nothing in this world is perfect, but you can rest assured that you will always get our best.

Our officers, staff and I would like to wish everyone a happy and joyous holiday season and a healthy and prosperous new year.

Anthony G. Manna, Chief of Police

Fairfield Police Department

The essential concept was that people could govern themselves and participate in democracy, or what Benjamin Franklin and others called “a great experiment.” The vision was bold and has flourished as the ...

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
