The United States Department of Justice and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) has selected the Arlington Police Department to be one of fifteen law enforcement agencies nationwide that will serve as an exemplary implementation model for the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing.

Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams, City Manager Trey Yelverton, along with Police Chief Will Johnson attended a ceremony at the White House today as these announcements were made. Chief Johnson provided a speech to attendees on building public trust.

"Trust is not built during a crisis, it is not built quickly, and no matter how much trust you build it can erode over time. Building public trust requires constant devotion, a focus on relationships, and a demonstrated commitment to achieve community goals through personal and organizational actions," said Chief Johnson
