Facebook is not a proper way for government to communicate with citizens - it requires that you join a private website before interacting on supposedly important public safety information. It is highly invasive of privacy, too. Finally, the FPD does not have a Facebook page, although the town does.

Yes, the department does: https://www.facebook.com/FPDCT It's a recent addition. They're also on Twitter & Youtube. The link is included in the subhead, "Fairfield Police Department.".

Titles are not the expected place for links; the blue link in that section does not go to the FB page. If the official PD site doesn't have links to their social network accounts, anything that claims to be them should not be trusted. Web safety 101.
