The Community Engagement Division (CED), led by Deputy Chief Wayne Vincent, works with the business, youth and residential communities to build and maintain strong partnerships with those we serve through proactive engagement. The CED is comprised of three units – Business Outreach, Youth Outreach and Community Outreach – which work with their respective stakeholders to address public safety concerns and further the Department's efforts to improve transportation safety and implement crime prevention and control initiatives. 

The application period for the 26th Community Police Academy is now open. Through this eight-week, educational program, participants will gain knowledge and understanding of how police officers are trained, their daily work environment, and the wide scope of work they perform in service to the Arlington community.
