Chief's Message

Matthew E. Barnes
Police Chief     

As the Chief of Police, I am pleased to have the opportunity of introducing you to the Fairport Police Department. Through the helpful information contained in our website, you’ll find that our agency is committed to addressing the concerns of our community as well as our commitment to community policing principles. 

Credit for our success belongs to the guidance and direction demonstrated every day by the senior leaders in the department, as well as the hard work being accomplished by all the members of our organization. And I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the members of our community that partner with the police department.

With the many challenges that face law enforcement today, I am extremely proud of our ability to adapt and remain steadfast in our commitment to providing the best possible police services to the Fairport community. 

I encourage you to navigate through our website, which reaffirms our commitment to proactively and responsively address the needs of our community, enhance our public safety services, and maintain the highest quality of life in Fairport.

FPD is Here for YOU!
