FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Police Department, in cooperation with the Fairfield-Suisun School District, conducted a city wide truancy sweep Tuesday.

According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, the sweep targeted juveniles who were out in public between of 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in violation of a city ordinance.

In all, 24 students were cited for curfew violations and returned to school.

Additionally, one student was arrested for possession of a concealed knife and another student was arrested for assaulting a police officer. Both were booked at Solano County Juvenile Hall.

Police said the goal of the operation was not only to stress the importance of being in school, but to take a proactive approach to reducing thefts and vandalism committed by students who choose not to stay in school. Report daytime truants to police at 428-7300.
