Farmington Police Department employees spent this past Saturday cleaning the yards of community members in need. Among the employees were Code Compliance officers and their supervisor, the District Coordinator Unit sergeant and lieutenant, FPD’s fleet manager and a member of the Explorers group. A limited number of properties were chosen from submissions sent to FPD over the summer. This is the second year Code Compliance requested nominations for residents who didn’t have the means to remove debris and overgrown vegetation from their yards. This year, properties located on the 5000 block of Loma Alta Drive and the 1300 block of South Monterey Avenue received assistance.
The Farmington Police Department is working to become better acquainted with the citizens of Farmington through neighborhood outreach. On Friday, September 4 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. the department’s District Coordinator Unit and Code Compliance will go door to door to meet community members. During this time, they will also distribute information packets in an effort to bring awareness to the department’s various programs and services. The packets will include details about FPD’s mobile app, virtual neighborhood watch (Nextdoor.com), volunteer opportunities and programs such as Women Against Crime, Citizens Police Academy and Explorers. This is a great opportunity for the citizens of Farmington to meet the officers, ask questions and learn about FPD’s proactive community policing efforts.
Reaching out to the community we serve to help make Farmington a great place to live, work and play!
