The Marine Unit is available to respond to any on water emergency 24 hours a day. Contact the Fairfield Police Department at 203-254-4800 or 911 in an emergency.
Due to some significant hazards in Fairfield waters such as Penfield Reef, Sunken Island and The Cows, Marine unit officers respond to numerous types of calls on the water. They handle emergency calls such as boaters in distress, sinking vessels or vessel fires. They routinely search for missing boats or persons around the shoreline. Marine officers also enforce all State and Local boating laws and regulations as well as perform safety inspections of vessels within their area of responsibility.
The Fairfield Police Marine Unit works closely with the United States Coast Guard and other local marine police units. They regularly assists the U.S. Coast Guard with homeland security measures and port security.
If you have any boating questions feel free to stop by the Fairfield Police Marine Unit office located in the South Benson Marina, Fairfield or call (203) 254-4866. (Staffed Seasonally).
