ACPD Releases Statement on San Bernardino Shooting

Arlington County police logoThe Arlington County Police Department is well-prepared for active shooter and terrorism threats.

That’s the message from a statement issued by ACPD today, in response to the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California earlier this week.

The statement, below, also encourages residents to report suspicious activity via the county’s Homeland Security Tip Form or via smartphone app.

The Arlington County Police Department extends our sincere condolences to the San Bernardino, California community. We want to reassure the citizens of Arlington County that our officers remain vigilant in their patrols of our community. Officers receive extensive training in active shooter situations and have the tools necessary to respond should an incident occur. There are currently no active threats to the Washington, D.C. area and our Homeland Security Section continues to monitor these incidents with our local, state and federal law enforcement partners.

Citizens are encouraged to go about their normal business while paying particular attention to their surroundings. You are the first line of defense against terrorism and by providing information to law enforcement, you may help deter possible terrorist activity. Report suspicious activity in Arlington County using the Homeland Security Tip Form or to nationwide intelligence centers using the See Send smartphone application. Together, we can help keep Arlington County safe.
