Day in and Day out, the men and women of the Danbury Police Department bust their tails off to keep our city and the people in it as safe as possible. The truth is, though, that there are plenty of individuals who refuse to abide by society's laws. Sometimes, despite the diligent work from Danbury's finest, certain criminals slip through the cracks.

The following group of people top the list of the most wanted fugitives by the City of Danbury Police Department, making up "Danbury's Evasive Eight".

The DPD reminds the public not to attempt to apprehend these people in any way. If you have information about the whereabouts of these fugitives, contact the Danbury Police Department immediately at its TIPS line - 203-790-8477.
