Our crime rate was really starting to drop in 2009. Then the state of California came and took 54 million in funds from our city (To help balance the state budget and pay for state programs) we have suffered tremendously in the last couple of years with severe cuts in police, fire and city staff. Our crime rate has increased to much higher levels. The good news, is Measure P just passed. This will generate millions of dollars for our city and help us restore our services and protection to previous levels. Over-all Fairfield is a safe and beautiful place to live. Close to everything. Napa is 20 minutes away, San Francisco, 40 minutes, Sacramento 40 minutes. Mountains, beaches, good food, good wine and so much more make our city a wonderful place to be.
