Arlington Police Department K9 Program Opens a New Window. - The City of Arlington would like to give citizens the opportunity to assist in supporting the Arlington Police Department K9 Program. Arlington Police Department currently has two canines, Oso and Tara. Oso is a dual purpose dog, meaning he can both detect drugs and track people. Tara is a drug detection dog. Handlers are trained to work with their canine partners and provide for their care and feeding. Both the handlers and their dogs go through extensive training to ensure they are both prepared to handle the work conditions they face. Because of their work ethic and commitment to public safety, both the handlers and their police dogs are prepared to be on-call whenever their services are needed.Arlington’s K-9 program is currently funded entirely through community support, donations and partnerships. Check out more information on our K9 program here. Opens a New Window.
Social Services Flex Fund - A fund dedicated to allow access to funds for our fire and police departments to provide for immediate basic needs to individuals who are addicted to opiates. Use of the fund is specifically designed to fill the gap of time (typically 2 to 3 days) between when the individual makes the decision to stop the addiction to when the individual can be connected to services.
Wipe-out Graffiti - is a local group of citizen volunteers that work with the City of Arlington and is dedicated to wiping out graffiti anywhere it is located.
