Arlington PD to Participate in National Night Out

Officers from the Arlington County Police Department’s Third District will be participating in National Night Out tonight (Tuesday).

National Night Out is described as “an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation.” Locally, the Third District — which includes most of southwestern Arlington County — will be participating in four National Night Out events.

The times and locations listed for the events are:

  • Fort Henry Gardens (2470 S. Lowell Street) — 12:00 to 8:00 p.m.
  • Barcroft Community House (800 S. Buchanan Street) — 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
  • Park Glen Condos (824 South Arlington Mill Drive) — 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
  • Douglas Park (1718 S. Quincy Street) — 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The Barcroft neighborhood website says its National Night Out event will include an ice cream social, along with appearances from state Sen. Barbara Favola and members of the police department. The time listed for the event on the neighborhood website is 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said the events are intended to help the department build relationships in neighborhoods.

“National Night Out is about building long-standing relationships within the community and developing a sense of trust with one another… so when crimes like the one today occur, there’s full cooperation between neighbors and the police,” said Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck, referencing the two suspicious deaths that are currently being investigated in the Hall’s Hill neighborhood.
