The Farmington Police Department is an internationally accredited, progressive law enforcement agency committed to maintaining the highest standards of personal and organizational integrity while providing our community with a superior level of service. Department challenges are met by remaining responsive to community needs, employing innovative crime-fighting strategies, implementing state-of-the-art technology, and providing leadership to our young people through effective crime prevention and intervention programs.
The Department continues to demonstrate its commitment to the community by aggressively addressing criminal activity through Community Oriented Policing concepts. The community policing initiatives conducted by the Department are designed to meet the diverse needs of the community. Several offices are maintained throughout the community to enhance accessibility to police services. These offices are located at the old fire station on McCormick School Road, the City Centre, located in downtown Farmington, and the Urgent Care Center on East Main Street.
Recognizing that today’s youth are the keys to our future, the Department maintains the School Resource Officer program in the local schools. The Department also sponsors a two week Summer Adventure Camp for local youth.
The Farmington Police Department continues to meet the standards to remain accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Department went through the re-accreditation process in April 2009 and was awarded the Certificate of Re-accreditation in November of 2009.
