Arlington County police logoThe Arlington County Police Department will soon stop sending out weekly crime reports, but is working on a system for placing crime data in a mapped format.

A police spokeswoman tells ARLnow.com that the department will continue producing its daily crime reports. The weekly crime reports were just compilations of the daily reports and deemed redundant.

In the meantime, the police department is planning to start publishing a crime map on its website later this year.

Separately, ACPD recently had a shakeup in its press office. Dustin Sternbeck, who had served as department spokesman since early 2012, in January joined D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department as its top spokesman.

Sternbeck has been making changes to MPD’s public information office, putting a friendlier and more open face on the department, in part through the use of pop culture references and emojis on social media.
