Why is FPD Running?
Farmington Police Officer Joseph Barreto was injured in the line of duty on Jan. 7, 2022, responding to a drunk driver call. Officer Barreto made contact with a man and woman walking in the area who matched the description of the car’s occupants. The man pulled out a gun and fired several shots hitting Officer Barreto in the arm. The man fled the scene. He was later arrested in Arizona. Officer Barreto had to undergo numerous surgeries and is on light-duty while he continues his road to recovery. Ten-82 was able to monetarily help Officer Barreto and his family during their time of need. He and the Farmington Police Department are grateful for the organization's support and want to pay it forward to other public servants experiencing hardships.
