SAFETY
Farmers Branch residents enjoy peace of mind knowing the Farmers Branch Police and Fire Departments work hard to proactively maintain a safe City. On the occasion there is an emergency, they are on scene in under five minutes. Additionally, these departments work hard to be visible in the community, maintaining a dialogue between law enforcement and residents. Some of the services and programs offered include:
Vacation House Watch – designed to provide peace of mind to Farmers Branch residents while they are away from home for extended periods of time. Members of the Farmers Branch Police Department will physically check each registered house during a resident’s absence. Information provided by the resident makes it possible to contact them, or their designated key holder, in the event that the residence may need attention. The Vacation House Watch Program provides an overall increase in police presence around homes during a resident’s time away.

Property Identification Program – The Farmers Branch Police Department’s Property Identification Program is designed to prevent thefts and burglaries and help identify stolen property should a theft or burglary happen. Our police officers frequently recover property that is unidentifiable due to lack of identifying information such as the make, model and serial number.

Citizen Police Academy – The Farmers Branch Police Department Citizen Police Academy is a 33-hour block of instruction designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Police Department’s personnel and policies. It consists of a series of classes held once each week for three hours. The instruction is comprehensive, covering a different area of the Police Department each week. Officers, supervisors and personnel assigned to that particular division conduct each instructional block.

Teen Academy – Farmers Branch Teen Academy Camp is a summer camp in which children between the ages of 14 and 18 learn, have a great time, and also get an idea of what it’s like to work in law enforcement. They learn from a number of highly trained law enforcement officials such as the D/FW Airport Department of Public Safety, FBI, Farmers Branch Police and Fire Departments, and other agencies.
