The Farmington Hills Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency that provides routine, emergency and investigative police services. In fulfilling this mission, Police Chief Chuck Nebus has embraced a community policing philosophy, which has proven very successful in addressing crime and its causes, and quality of life issues. Community policing involves forming partnerships between the police department and the residents and businesses. This alliance identifies problems, issues and needs, then formulates and implements courses of action to address them.

The Police Department recognizes that great achievements may be attained when police work with the community to create a safe and prosperous environment. Almost two decades ago, we committed ourselves to making Farmington Hills one of the safest cities in the country. Due in no small part to the police-community partnership, the City of Farmington Hills consistently ranks among the safest cities in the country. The CQ Press annually examines the crime statistics of nearly 393 cities nationwide. Farmington Hills consistently ranks among the safest. Crime data from 2009, the most recent data analyzed, revealed that Farmington Hills ranked as the 30th safest city in the nation and the 2nd safest city in Michigan and serious, Group A crime decreased 6.4%.
