Community Policing Programs and Services

It improves the quality of life by encouraging a partnership between the police and the citizens of a community to develop a cohesive effort to solve problems creatively.  Community policing strives to involve citizens for their input, information and assistance, leading to greater understanding and cooperation.

The Farmington Hills Police Department has been involved in community policing for over 20 years.
