Prisoners and Bonds
Inquiries about prisoners held at the Farmington Hills Police Department and how to bond a prisoner out of our jail can be directed to Police Command Desk personnel by calling (248) 871-2610. The Court sets the amount of a bond. Individuals charged with felonies, or certain types of misdemeanors, are not eligible for bond until they go to court and are arraigned. After a prisoner is arraigned, he or she will be transferred to the Oakland County Jail, located at 1200 Telegraph Road in Pontiac, (248) 858-4950, unless bond is posted before being transported. All bonds posted at the Farmington Hills Police Department must be cash.
The design of modern vehicles and the existence of side airbags create a danger for officers trying to unlock a vehicle. The Farmington Hills Police Department does not perform vehicle lockouts, except for emergencies. If you lock your keys in your vehicle contact a local tow company for assistance. If a child is locked in a vehicle the Fire Department and Police Department will respond and gain access.

A Personal Protection Order, commonly known as a “PPO”, is a court order intended to protect you from being harassed, beaten, assaulted, molested, wounded or stalked. The PPO prohibits a named individual from doing these things to you. It also prohibits the named individual from entering your premises and removing your children, unless there is an overriding court order.
To obtain a PPO you must go to the Oakland County Circuit Court (6th Circuit Court) at 1200 North Telegraph in Pontiac. You can contact the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Civil Division, located in the same complex, at 1200 North Telegraph in Pontiac, or call (248) 452-9725.
