FAIRFIELD, NJ — For the first time this year, the Fairfield Police Department Foundation is opening an online apparel store so that members of the public can show their support for their local law enforcement officers.

From now through Dec. 1, anyone can place an order for any item(s) found in the store. After Dec. 1, all orders will be produced and then shipped to each customer, arriving well before Christmas Day.

Every other month or so throughout the year, the store will be opened for about a month at a time and will work the same way. During each of these times, the store will not only display its regular sale items, but will also sometimes feature specialty items during specific times of the year.

For example, leading up to National Police Week in May, the store will feature police unity tour and thin-blue-line items. The same will be true in October and November with breast cancer and veteran items.

“For so long now, members of the public have been asking me and other officers where they could obtain Fairfield police items to show their support of us and all of law enforcement,” said Fairfield Police Chief Anthony Manna. “This online store that the police foundation is overseeing provides for that. Larger police departments—like the New York Police Department and New Jersey State Police have stores that promote their agencies in the community, and now so does the Fairfield Police Department.”

Manna added that he hopes that opening the store at this time of year will make the store a big success, as “many of the items in the store would make excellent holiday gifts.”

A portion of the proceeds for each item sold will go directly to the Fairfield Police Foundation for community policing events.
