Fairfield Family Holiday Giving Program

     Fairfield Social Services has kicked off its 2022 Family Holiday Giving Program to help Fairfield families in need during the Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas Holiday season. Last year 150 families received gift cards, generously donated by their neighbors, including individuals, businesses, faith-based and community organizations.     Every year we see more families struggling to pay their utilities and heat their homes.

Fairfield News: K-9 Ruger Crosses the "Rainbow Bridge" #Fairfield CT-- I'm sad to report that K-9 Ruger of the Fairfield Police Department was put down this morning. In 2011 Ruger was the first K-9 in the Fairfield Police Department. His handler was Officer Kevin Wells. In 2015 Ruger suffered on-the-job injuries that forced his retirement. Ruger was named after the Ruger Firearms company headquarters in Southport. The K-9 program in Fairfield is funded by private funds from citizens, school children participating in fundraisers, and local businesses like BMW of Bridgeport. Ruger was 12 years old. Job well done and thank you for your service, Ruger!

Fairfield New: Voting Security

#Fairfield CT-- Election day is upon us and as such, it is important to reflect on the fact that exercising one’s right to vote is a fundamental principle of our great democracy.  The process of going in person to a polling station to cast a vote is seen by many as not only a civic duty, but also a community function.  Heading out to the polls provides an opportunity for voters to see friends, neighbors, or even speak to a candidate before or after casting their vote.  This process is a natural and important part of our democratic society and must be protected. As with any event in the Town of Fairfield, the safety of our residents is of the…
