Traffic and Crime Prevention Committee

Chief Voelker meeting with Fairfield residents at the Community Center in 2011

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 2014. The dates for the meetings are as follows:

January 21st                           February 18th

March 18th                                April 15th

May 20th                                    June 17th

July 15th                                    August 19th

September 16th                     October 21st

November 18th                       December 16th   


All of these meetings will be held at the Fairfield Pio Costa Library, on Hollywood Avenue starting at 7 PM.
