It has been an awfully hectic time for Arlington police.
Of the four homicides in two weeks, three are yet unsolved, including the murder of grandmother. And this week brought news of a federal investigation of officers suspected of breaking the law as part of their alleged pursuit of steroids. One of the officers committed suicide after his arrest.
But here’s a bit of good news: the department’s Media Office has won a 2013 Best of Texas Award from the Center for Digital Government.
The award recognizes the department’s innovative use of social media and the news program Inside APD. Judges said this program is doing an “excellent job of increasing collaboration and expanding citizen engagement.”
