FBTX ~ The AT HOME initiative of the Farmers Branch Police Department is designed to improve the safety and security of home-bound residents in Farmers Branch who live alone by providing weekly telephone contact.

   The call, from the Farmers Branch Police Department, is to check on the well-being of the resident and to obtain assistance for the resident if needed. Calls, in both English and Spanish, will be made from 9 a.m. until noon, Monday through Friday. Only home-bound residents, who have chosen to participate in the initiative, will be contacted.AT HOME Sign Logo

   Any resident of Farmers Branch who is home-bound and lives alone may participate by completing an application. Applications may be obtained from the Farmers Branch Police Department, The Branch Connection, various churches throughout the city, calling 972.919.9351, or by completing the online application and waiver and release form. Applications can also be delivered to home-bound residents upon request.

   Residents will be added to a call-list and will receive a telephone call at the contact number on the selected day requested on the application. Calls will be made by volunteers of the Farmers Branch Police Department’s Citizens on Patrol organization. AT HOME is not intended to take the place of personal care or personal checks of the individual.
