There's a new kid on the Facebook block.
Since late January, the Farmington Public Safety Department's new Facebook page has connected with more than 120 people. Commander Frank Demers said it's "just another way we can get information out to residents."
Posts have included a downloadable home safety checklist, links to sites providing crime prevention information and lots of photos. One photo album, called "Blast form the Past", gives Facebook fans a look back through the department's history.
Anyone can view the page; Facebook users can add Farmington Public Safety to their news feed by clicking "Like" on the page.
The department also posts a weekly report detailing police calls on the city's website. Each week's information is in a document that can be downloaded.
Residents can have crime and community news delivered to their email inbox or phone by subscribing to Farmington Public Safety alerts at Nixle.com. To find out what's going on the old-fashioned way, attend Neighborhood Watch meetings held at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month, at .
