During two days of training, they learned more about the unique culture, customs and laws of the Navajo Nation. With four corners having such a large Navajo population, the department says the training provided important lessons. “They learned more about the Navajo PD’s community-oriented policing, their traffic and criminal code, and just different things that they deal with,” said Nicole Brown.

Farmington Police hope to have more collaborations in the future.
