ATTN: Farmington Residents
We are seeing an uptick in attempts to scam residents out of money. No law enforcement agency in the city, county, state or country will contact you by phone and ask you to pay a fine. If you receive one of these phone calls do not respond to their requests; gather what information you can from them and contact Farmington Police. If you receive anything in the mail from someone you don't know, bring the paperwork to Farmington Police and we will help you determine its authenticity.
Phone calls or mail correspondence from a lottery organization asking you to pay a fee or tax before you can claim your winnings are NEVER legitimate! Please do not fall victim to these scams, contact the police immediately if you hear or see anything suspicious.
Farmington City Police Department has officially opened a "Safe Exchange Zone". The safe exchange zone is an area that is well lit 24 hours a day, under 24 hour recorded video surveillance and within a few feet of the Police Department's front doors.
The Safe exchange is meant for the sole purpose to offer the city residents and visitors an area that is safe to exchange kids between parents or conduct personal online transactions.
The two stall safe zone is located in the parking lot south of the Police department building. The two designated stalls are each marked with a sign.
For information or questions on the Safe Exchange zone, please contact the Farmington Police Department at (801)-451-5453.

Farmington, Utah was named as being one of the 30 Safest Small Towns in America 2017
For our list of the 30 safest small towns in America, we began by considering only those towns with populations of fewer than 30,000 people. We then referenced sites like Movoto, Sperling’s Best Places, and Area Vibes to analyze statistics about crime rates to offer residents peace of mind.
Farmington, Utah was recognized in part because residents here have only a 1 in 60 chance of falling victim to a crime.
Compareinsurancecompanies.org knows safety is at the top of the list of what residents value most about the place they call home. A town’s safety record often affects everything from insurance rates to property values. We strive to provide clear, credible guidance to help residents find the best home for them.
