Named after the extremely large area of salt-marshes and swamps both on the coast and inland, Fairfield County is located in the southwestern corner of the U.S. state of Connecticut. Its population according to the 2000 census was 882,567, but a 2006 survey put the population at 905,000. It is the most populous county in the State of Connecticut.It is one of the highest-income counties in the United States and makes Connecticut one of the richest states in the United States because of towns in the southwestern part of the county also know as the Gold Coast which contain extreme wealth. This area is approximately from Southport to Greenwich, and home to wealthy New York City metropolitan suburbs such as Greenwich, Darien, Westport, Stamford Fairfield, Weston, Ridgefield, Wilton and New Canaan. In addition to its wealthy communities, Fairfield County is home to many lower-middle and working class-cities. Bridgeport, Danbury, and Norwalk, as well as other larger communities are more densely populated and economically diverse than the affluent areas for which the county is better known.
As is the case with all eight of Connecticut's counties, there is no county government, and no county seat. In Connecticut, towns are responsible for all local government activities, including fire and rescue, schools, and snow removal; in a few cases, neighboring towns will share certain resources. Fairfield County is merely a group of towns on a map. The county also had a Sheriff's Department until November 2000 when the office of County Sheriff in Connecticut counties was eliminated. Following that, in December 2000, all Deputy Sheriffs were transferred to Connecticut State Judicial Marshals.
