The Farmington Hills Police Department, in celebration of National Police Week May 9-15, is kicking of FHPD ROCKS a fun community wide scavenger hunt!
In several parks throughout Farmington Hills, the department has hidden rocks painted with images of police cars, K-9 Officer Dozer, police badges and more. If you find a painted rock, you can turn it in to the Farmington Hills Police Department at 31655 11 Mile Road and bring it in for a goodie bag containing: A blinking safety light, water bottle, and FHPD wrist band.
You can keep your rock OR choose to re-hide it in a city park. Rocks should be hidden in plain sight – not buried or hidden.
“This is a fun community program that gets families outside and gives them a chance to meet our officers at the Police Station,” said Farmington Hills Assistant Police Chief Bonnie Unruh. “We encourage kids to put the blinking safety lights from the goodie bags on their jackets or their bikes.”
The rocks were painted by a creative Police Service Aide who offered her talent to the FHPD ROCKS initiative. Lucky scavengers can email a photo of themselves holding the rock to Public Information Coordinator Gillian Pines at email@example.com for a post on the City Facebook page or may post the photo themselves on their own social media accounts.
Please be sure to include the name of the Farmington Hills park where you found the FHPD rock.
Every year, police officers are honored during National Police Week for preserving the safety and security of our communities and for encouraging positive connections with residents.
“This is an additional way for the men and women of the Farmington Hills Police Department to connect with our community and citizens,” said Police Chief Jeff King. “FHPD ROCKS adds yet another opportunity to strengthen our Community Policing program while it brings families together to enjoy our City’s beautiful parks.”
