APD Annual Reports - 2018 Annual Report - Page 31

In October 2018, command staff met to discuss the Community Policing Story and how it aligns with the department’s strategic plan. As the department refreshes organizational goals and objectives, each member of the command staff examined their areas of responsibility and how they could integrate the components and themes of this video into their operations. Continuing to elevate the public’s trust is a departmental priority. Through various programs, initiatives and relationships, the department offers a wide array of ways to engage in public trust-building activities. Procedural Justice is an organizing principle that officers and staff are taught from the beginning of their career. The video is available for public screenings not only in Arlington but also across the country. The department has published the video with Spanish and Vietnamese subtitles and shown the presentation to the Citizens Police Academy’s Alumni and Hispanic Citizens Police Academy. There are also plans to expand the screenings to other community forums in 2019. Arlington, Texas Police Department | 31
