Rep. Devlin to Hold Public Listening Forum on Juvenile Crime

Wants to Hear from Fairfield Residents, Find Meaningful Solutions

FAIRFIELD- With Fairfield, along with many towns across the state have been experiencing car thefts, valuables stolen from motor vehicles, and other acts committed mostly by juveniles. For many homeowners and property owners, these crimes are personal; their cars, garage, or home are being violated, and sometimes the crimes rise to more dangerous acts of violence. That is why State Representative Laura Devlin (R-134) will be holding an expert panel discussion with members of local enforcement, state prosecutors, and public defenders for a community conversation on the issue of juvenile crime.

The Juvenile Crime Public Forum will be held at the Sacred Heart University Community Theatre on September 13 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. The theatre is located in downtown Fairfield at 1420 Post Road. Per theater policy, masks are required during this event.

Pre-registration is required, to ensure seating. Please register here. To view a full list of the panel or to submit a question to be read to the panel, please go here.

This Juvenile Crime ‘Listening’ Forum is an important opportunity to hear from the public, their concerns, experiences, questions on this serious issue. Rep. Devlin has assembled the expert panel as a way to provide background on these issues but will spend the majority of the forum listening to concerned Fairfielders.

After the Forum, State Rep. Devlin will use the resident input to help craft policy with her legislative colleagues which will hopefully address the current juvenile crime crisis.

Anyone who has additional questions regarding the Crime Forum, please call State Rep. Devlin State Capitol office at 1.800.842.1423 or email her office at Laura.Devlin@housegop.ct.gov.
