Please join in celebrating Fairfield’s 375th anniversary with our historic town- wide food drive at Fairfield-Ludlowe H. S. the weekend of April 26 and 27.
Our efforts will stock the pantries of Fairfield’s Operation Hope, the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, the Thomas Merton House, which together feed hundreds of families in Fairfield and our neighboring communities each week, and A Project from the Heart which sends care packages to our troops fighting overseas.
Our churches, synagogues, clubs, our universities, public, private and parochial schools, as well as the business community will be conducting subsidiary drives, and will deliver their collections to Ludlowe that weekend.

For $5, anyone can purchase a warrant for friends or faculty members, and the arrestee is placed in jail until they are able to collect enough money for their bail bond and be released. Once the warrant has been declared, Public Safety and Police officers find the arrestee, handcuff them, and walk them back to the jail set up in the traffic circle. From there, the arrestee faces a judge who will set their bail bond.
Depending on the offense written on the warrant, number of warrants, poor dress, poor attitude, or messy hair, the judge can raise bail as high as he pleases. Once bail has been set, the arrestee’s handcuffs are taken off, a mugshot is taken, and s/he is placed in the cell. While in the cell, the arrestee calls, texts, and begs friends to bring them money to post bail.

Fairfield Police offer support and assistance in the days following the tragic event in Newtown, CT. Police have been working at the Newtown EOC, provided motorcycle and traffic escorts throughout the week. Let us all keep in mind the words offered by the president. "I come to offer the love and prayers of a nation," "I am very mindful that mere words cannot match the depths of your sorrow nor can they heal your wounded hearts. I can only hope it helps to know you are not alone ... and that all across this land we have wept with you."
