Every week, you can meet people of all ages who are inspiring their community and loved ones through their work, outlook on life, actions and good deeds. Crime on the Mind features Lt. James Perez from the Fairfield Police Dept. He’s one of the only cops in CT who travels around the country teaching crime prevention to other police departments.
