Letter from Sheriff Dave Phalen
view bio /
Our office works hard to make significant improvements in our county in order to continue to make Fairfield County a great place to live and raise a family. My office is committed to making our neighborhoods safer. By doing so, we will improve the quality of life for individuals and families, both young and old. It is imperative that we seek new ways to reduce the negative influences that crime has on children and to help safeguard the elderly. Our approach has been three-fold.
         Integrity       Commitment to Excellence       Community Involvement
Serving the citizens of Fairfield County has been an exciting and rewarding time for me. I appreciate all the support you have given to the Sheriff's Office. It is true that together we can make a difference, now and in the future.  
     Sheriff Dave Phalen
