All too often crime in the community gives us pause and we realize what we hold most important to us. It’s undoubtedly the safety and security we all take for granted. Each day as we go about our daily lives, in our homes and in public places never giving second thought to the possibility of becoming a victim.
Thankfully, Tuesday should have restored our confidence in knowing that the men and woman of the Fairfield Police Department, who never feign in their desire and ability to stop crime. They illustrate that they, too, are stakeholders in this community, willing to risk their lives and protect innocent victims from further harm.
I would like to introduce to you Officer Daniel Victoria, who was recently transferred to the Traffic Division. It was done so because he demonstrated his ability to be knowledgeable in identifying suspicious activity and through his enforcement of criminal and motor vehicle laws. He is a proactive officer with seven and half years of experience.
Officer Victoria’s keen observations on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013 led to the apprehension of a robbery suspect who was posing a serious danger to the public. Through his determination and perseverance that individual was taken into custody.
Officer Victoria exemplifies the character and demonstrates the professionalism of a well-trained police officer. The Fairfield Police Department proudly recognizes his contribution leading to this notable arrest.
Thank you, Officer Daniel Victoria.
