New crime prevention handbooks are now on display at the downtown Farmington public library and the Farmington Public Safety Department. The handbooks were purchased by the FPSD through a Homeland Security grant. Farmington area residents are encouraged to stop by and pick up the handbooks, free of charge.
There are three handbooks that provide helpful safety information to residents. The handbook entitled, Crime Prevention, A Citizens Handbook, provides updated information that will teach residents how to protect themselves against crimes such as burglary, theft and home invasion. The Neighborhood Watch handbook provides helpful information regarding the importance of Neighborhood Watch programs and how residents can get actively involved in the program. The third handbook, the Business Alert Handbook, provides information to business owners about how they can protect themselves against business related crimes.
Farmington Public Safety Commander Frank Demers said, These handbooks will bring more awareness about crime prevention to the community. It is our hope that residents will read the handbooks and share the information they learn with their families and neighbors.
City of Farmington residents are encouraged to register to receive email alerts about public safety information in the community. If you are interested in receiving email alerts, please email your name and address to Commander Frank Demers at firstname.lastname@example.org
