Arlington County is out with a new video Public Service Announcement, reminding residents that they can now text 911 if they can’t call.
The video shows a humble office worker saving the day when he spots a bad guy trying to break into cars in his parking garage.
For the record, the “bad guy” in the video, Arlington County Public Information Officer Peter Golkin, is in fact regarded as one of the nicest guys in county government. Also, as an avid bike commuter, it’s quite doubtful that he would ever feel the need to steal a car.
More information about Arlington’s text-to-911 initiative can be found on the county website.
