Uniformed Patrol Services

Prisoners and Bonds

Officer in holding cell.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.

Vehicle Lockouts

Extra Police Patrols

The information will be provided to officers prior to their going on duty.

Animal Complaints

Animal Control Shelter BuildingA missing or runaway pet or any complaint regarding stray pets, should be reported to the Oakland County Animal Shelter at (248) 391-4102, or the Farmington Hills Police Department at (248) 871-2610.  All lost or stray pets found by the Farmington Hills Police Department are turned over to the Oakland County Animal Shelter.

Personal Protection Orders

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, and request a “do-it-yourself PPO packet.”  You must follow the instructions carefully when filling out the forms.  The forms are then forwarded to a Judge.  To have a named individual served notice of the PPO, 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.

Complaints Involving Police Employees

It is the policy of the Farmington Hills Police Department to investigate all complaints of alleged employee misconduct, to equitably determine whether the allegations are valid and to take appropriate action.

If you have a complaint against a Police Department employee, you should contact the Police Command Desk at (248) 871-2610 and ask to speak with a supervisor.  If the complaint can be resolved through explanation and discussion, then no further action will need to be taken.

If you wish to file a formal complaint of alleged employee misconduct, you will need to come to the police station and speak with a supervisor.  The supervisor will provide you with a “Citizen Complaint Report” form.  The supervisor will explain the method for completing the form and answer any questions you may have concerning the formal complaint.
