As a day of service, remember these simple words from Dr. King.."You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” Make the day count. Happy #MLKDay2018

Congratulations to our youth. Stepping today with heart and soul. The MLK celebration continues through the weekend.

Sgt. Jakisha Jones ran into this young man and he told her he wants to be a police officer. She asked him why...he said, "Because you guys are always helping people." This little man is already wise beyond his years.

His jacket sums it up. This suspect, along with another suspect, are seen walking through the area of the 5300 block of Farragut Drive and looking for unlocked vehicles.

It's never too early to plan for the Back the Blue Bash. The 5th annual party is set for March 2, 2018. It’s an evening of fun, food and live music that benefits a great cause in the Arlington Police foundation. For more information check out the link below.

It’s no secret that fraud can affect any of us at any time. The phone impersonation scam is the most popular phishing scams that exists; and the best form of defense is public education. The APD wants every citizen to know that the department does not make calls to request money over the phone from anyone, to include persons of interests, registered sex offenders or those with general fines. If you have received any suspicious calls please report them to us.

Catch a glimpse of one of these faces and it could be worth $1,000. Our Top-10 Most Wanted for the Week. Crime Stoppers will pay for information that leads to an arrest.

This is enough cough syrup to take care of that nasty cough….if you’re a grizzly bear. Some great police work nabbed over 30 bottles of promethazine which is used to make prescription strength cough syrup. This bust had enough promethazine to make 4,730 bottles of cough syrup. Officers also seized over 3,000 pills of Xanax, other narcotics and cash. In all, some very dangerous stuff and roughly $30,000 of drugs taken off the streets. Overall, great job to our officers involved in this seizure before this stuff ended up into our community!

Please contact Detective Perdue with any information at 817-459-6487 or email him at

It's a cold, frosty morning. Warm the car up, but don't walk away from it and become a victim. Car thieves don't mind the winter weather.
