How to Report Domestic Violence to Police

If you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1 or ask a neighbor to call if you are unable.  If you are not in immediate danger but wish to report the incident, call the Farmington Hills Police Department non-emergency number (248) 871-2600, or come to the Farmington Hills Police Department.  This should be done as soon as possible after the incident to preserve evidence.  You should also seek medical attention for any injuries you may have suffered.

All reports of domestic violence are investigated.
