FAIRFIELD — The Mayor’s Commission on Crime is hosting a community forum on crime at 6 p.m.Tuesday at St. Stephen CME Church, 2301 Union Ave. in Fairfield.
People can share concerns and provide suggestions, solutions or resources to help combat crime in the community.
Those who are not able to attend can log on to the commission’s website, www.stopfairfieldcrime.com, and send insights for the commission to review.
The commission was formed as a result of a particularly violent start to 2014.
Fairfield police, with the city and Fairfield-Suisun School District, hosted a community meeting April 29 about crime and after the town hall, Mayor Harry Price called for the commission. The proposal was discussed at the May 20 meeting and Councilwomen Pam Bertani and Catherine Moy interviewed applicants June 18 and 19.
Commission members were later appointed. The goal is for the commission to have a report to the City Council by September.
