Dustin Sternbeck is taking over the role of Public Information Officer later this month, as the ACPD spokeswoman for the past 4 years, Det. Crystal Nosal, is heading back to the department’s patrol division. Nosal, a familiar face on local news broadcasts when a significant crime or accident happens in Arlington, is a uniformed police officer while Sternbeck comes to the department as a civilian employee.
Sternbeck was formerly a uniformed Public Information Officer for the Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management. More recently, he served as the spokesman for Northern Virginia Community College.
