Letter: Thank You, Officer Daniel Victoria

The Police Department's Office of Public Affairs thanks Officer Daniel Victoria for his work in apprehending a robbery suspect who posed 'a serious danger to the public' on Tueday.

[Editor's note: This letter was submitted by the Fairifeld Police Department's Office of Public Affairs.]

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.

no henry,lets take the "firefighters" sick days and put them into some sense of reality. I don't begrudge a cop a single thing.they put their lives on the line every single day. I take it from your e-mail that you are a union butt boy. washing fire trucks for a living is not worth 100k per year.

Sounds good to me.

Hunt club cops get the same number of sick days. By town statistics the fire department goes to over 9000 calls a year. maybe one day you will look a a bit deeper into what the cops and firemen do in Fairfield. the fire department is also the state certified first responders for the town of Fairfield. Both department members risk thier lives every day they put the uniform on. One last thing hunt club, take a look at the number of sick days taken by both departments members, it'd public infomation. You will see cops take far more sick days than firemen and also you will see a pattern with how cops take sick days. I'm done now so it's your time to call me names.

huntclub be careful how you talk about sick days. I'm a union butboy cop and we use our sick days for vacation time off. Don't be messin up a good thing we got going here behind the blue wall.

Reviewing the sick time in the fire department i found that more than 90 percent of the firemen take less than 4 days a year sick time off. Did you know that several firemen have not taken a sick day in more that 20 years.
roger fuller January 28, 2013 at 11:17 PM
Tomorrow i will go take a look at the police officers sick time. Then Mr. Hunt Club we will see whats up.
Andrew Holden January 29, 2013 at 11:10 AM
Think you can really get through the blue wall to get truthfull information?
roger fuller January 29, 2013 at 10:33 PM
Well the cops are not so quick to give up their sicktime infomation. I will continue to work on it. But so far it appears the police in Fairfield are far and away more abusive with the use of sick time off than the firemen.
