Notification from the Fair Haven Police Department: CAR THEFTS
I am writing to thank our residents for their efforts as we all have to deal with the rising crime of car thefts throughout the state.  Surrounding towns have had continued car thefts and we have also had some attempts, but the number has greatly reduced thanks to all of our efforts, Please continue to be vigilant. 

Fair Haven Police Department has been working with other police departments and state agencies to try to combat this crime.  Below are some reminders that we ask that you continue to do.  If we all work together, we can eliminate this crime.

  • LOCK your VEHICLES at all times

  • If your vehicle has a side mirror feature, program it to turn the mirrors in when the vehicle is locked
  • NEVER leave your children in the vehicle unattended
  • NEVER leave the vehicle running unattended
  • If you keep your vehicles in your garage- still remove keys, fobs and lock the doors
  • Keep all house doors locked including the door from the garage into the house
