The events are an opportunity for the public to meet officers involved in the Arlington Restaurant Initiative and learn about efforts to promote safety in areas of the county where restaurants and nightlife are prevalent.

The events open to the public.

I am tired of the excuse that ACPD can't hire enough officers. The County has all kinds of money for all kinds of Taj Mahal infrastructure, much of it will have to be expensively maintained, and replaced a few years after it's constructed.

Also, why so little 'community policing' except when it comes to a few hundred dysfunctional persons in a few urbanized neighborhoods? Arlington's property owners will be taxed more than $140 million to pay for a Department of Human Services with more than 700 employees in FY 20.
