Have you received a postcard to join Nextdoor.com and are worried it’s a scam? It is NOT a scam. Nextdoor.com is a private social network for your neighborhood – a virtual neighborhood watch. Our District Coordinator Unit has been working to encourage more people to join the information sharing platform. Many neighborhoods in Farmington have already been established within the network. There are a couple of reason why you may have received a postcard from Nextdoor: 1. If you recently joined the platform, Nextdoor may send you a postcard with a verification code. This is one of the methods they use to verify that you live in the neighborhood you requested to join on Nextdoor (see Example #1). 2. A neighbor may have recently joined Nextdoor and is inviting others in their neighborhood to join. Nextdoor sends postcard invitations free of charge as requested by other members (see Example #2). For more information, visit Nextdoor.com or message us with your questions. REMINDER: There’s a Neighborhood Watch meeting tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the San Juan College School of Energy in the Merrion Room. The meeting is open to all Farmington residents.

*******Update**** Arianna Jim has been located safe and is with family! Good morning Farmington, Last night an 11 year old girl, Arianna Jim, was reported missing by her mother around 11pm. At approximately 0930 this morning she was located in the company of her older brother unharmed. Regarding the missing juvenile report: There were no indications that an abduction had occurred; however, FPD takes cases such as this seriously and dedicated a lot of resources to this case including detectives, 2 K9 search teams and support from other agencies including the FBI. We understand the public's concerns as to why an Amber Alert was not immediately issued, so here is an explanation as to the criteria required for such an alert and why we don’t use this system unless the case meets these specific factors. Criteria for an Amber Alert: Activation of the Amber Alert must meet all of the following criteria: 1. The abducted child must be 17 years of age or younger, or of a proven mental or physical disability; 2. There must be evidence of an actual abduction of a child and not a runaway; 3. There must be a credible reason to believe the child is in immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death; and 4. There must be enough descriptive information about the child, the suspect, and/or the suspect's vehicle to believe an immediate broadcast will assist in the location of the child or suspect. Although many may believe there should be less stringent criteria for these alerts, the criteria for these alerts are set by Federal and State authorities. Officials have to ensure the alerts do not become so common place that the public begins to become desensitized to their activations. There are numerous reports of runaways each year, many of whom match the situation from last night and early this morning. Knowing this situation did not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert, the FPD and our community worked together to get this information out to the public and in doing so, we were able to locate this child. We utilized media outlets and social media platforms to reach as many people as we possibly could. As an example or just how fast social media can impact these types of situations, this particular incident was shared almost 1,000 times and reached almost 13,000 people in just a few hours. We want to thank all those that helped us locate Arianna, she is safe and back with her family. We want to express our gratitude to the many people who helped us get this case resolved, especially the numerous officers and detectives that have worked tirelessly on this case and have ensured it was brought to such a positive conclusion. Thank you, FPD

PRESS RELEASE On 10/26/17 at approximately 1755 hours, Farmington Police Officers were dispatched to a traffic crash at the intersection of Cochiti Avenue and 20th Street. The crash involved an SUV and a motorcycle. The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead on scene. The driver of the motorcycle, Donald Brandenburg (53 of Farmington), was traveling westbound on 20th Street on a 2007 Harley Davidson. Keaton Blair (31 of Farmington) was driving a 2011 Infinity SUV southbound on Cochiti Avenue. Blair was attempting to make a right hand turn onto 20th Street when he pulled out in front of Brandenburg, causing Brandenburg to strike the driver side of the SUV. The investigation is still pending; however, alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor for either driver.
****Update*** 20th Street is open again for normal traffic. Thank you for your patience.
