FAIRFIELD — Members of the Fairfield Police Department are scheduled to meet Wednesday night with residents of Cordelia Villages about the increasing crime levels in the area.
The meeting, set for 6:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at Oakbrook Elementary School, 700 Oakbrook Drive, is part of a larger campaign by residents to rid their neighborhoods of what they see as increasingly brazen acts, including auto thefts in broad daylight, mail theft and even gun violence.
Residents have been organizing through social media to try to get the city to acknowledge their issues and find solutions.
Crime in the area became an issue again last week with a shooting on Capistrano Court. No injuries were reported in the Thursday afternoon incident and it remains under investigation.
