Arlington, TX: A Community Policing Story

The U.S. Department of Justice Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) in coordination with Not In Our Town (NIOT) published a compelling piece about the way law enforcement services are provided in Arlington, Texas. The publication and video, “Arlington, TX: A Community Policing Story,” provides a glimpse into our department’s handling of a series of tragedies. The video and guidebook serve as a resource for police departments to learn from the Arlington experience, and to provide an overview of community policing initiatives and how the Arlington Police Department institutes procedural justice and trust building in the greater community.

The film Arlington, TX: A Community Policing Story, which runs for 28 minutes, examines the challenges of policing in the 21st century, particularly at a time when the public has been increasingly examining the state of policing in America and effective relationships between law enforcement and communities of color.
