Arlington County Police Chief M. Douglas Scott has issued a statement about the threat of a terror attack during this weekend’s 9/11 anniversary.

We adjusted our staffing levels earlier this week in anticipation of the 9/11 anniversary, so you may see additional officers around Arlington County. Our police officers are aware of the recent information regarding a “credible” threat, and the department is in close contact with federal law enforcement for updates. The Arlington County Police Department is committed to the safety of our community and encourages the public to report any activity that they find suspicious to our emergency operators.

    If banks were open on Sunday I’d say that would be a good day to rob some banks given our trackrecord here.

    Our best thoughts and gratitude to Chief Scott and the entire Arlington government team – here’s looking forward to a somber, commemorative, contemplative and uneventful weekend.

      Thank you . . .
