Crime Tips

General Tip Information

The Fairfield Police Department utilizes technology that allows us to open up a two-way line of communication which will enable citizens to anonymously provide us information that will assist us in the solving of crimes and create a safer community. You can even attach photographs and videos after you submit an initial tip!

When you submit a tip via any of the three options listed below, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service, which acts as a privacy buffer between you and the Fairfield Police Department in order to protect your identity and your contact information. If you have a tip for the Fairfield Police Department, you can utilize any of the three options listed below to help provide vital information on crimes, criminals, or those engaging in illicit or criminal activity which will assist us in keeping the Town of Fairfield safe for everyone.
