This is achieved using proven problem-solving methods and partnerships to elevate the quality of life in our neighborhoods. Officers and staff focus on five key areas which provide the foundation to making Arlington a safer community: Community Engagement, Refocus on Geographic Policing, Intelligence, Multi-Year Planning, and Effective Enforcement. These five principles are the foundation of our "Focus on the Five" C.R.I.M.E reduction strategy.
We invite you to become involved with your department in order to forge a strong cooperative partnership that is built upon mutual trust and respect. No police department can solve crime or quality of life issues alone. Effective police community relationships, communication, and engagement are critical components to our success.
