    An Arlington off-duty officer was arrested following a recent assault investigation, officials said. At around 5:10 a.m. on August 5, police responded to the 2300 block of Columbia Pike where they found a female victim, outside the residence, suffering serious but non-life threatening injuries, according to the Arlington County Police Department.  The suspect, off-duty police officer William Hahn, and the victim got into an argument after a night out, officials said.

    Arlington police say they did not racially profile a black man who officers stopped last year when they were pursuing a white man. The police department released a statement on Friday, Aug. 5, disputing the claims made in a civil-rights lawsuit filed against the office.  "The investigation found no evidence to support a claim of racial profiling or excessive use of force," the statement said. "The investigator did find that officers violated some department policies, and as a result of the outside investigation, three officers were disciplined, one officer and the sergeant received mandatory re-training and the sergeant received remedial supervisor training. The third officer later left the department." Donovan Johnson was walking to his Somerville home from his job at a hospital in February 2021 when an Arlington police officer rushed up to him on the sidewalk and demanded he get on the ground, the Associate Press reported.  Johnson, scared and confused over the confrontation, hesitated.

    The Arlington County Police Department in Virginia will be changing the way it delivers services to the community because of a significant reduction in officers. Police Chief Andy Penn said the department needs to fill 46 positions. They are authorized to have 376 sworn officer positions and only have 290 certified and functional officers who are able to provide solo law enforcement services. The remainder are in training.

    ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Arlington Police Chief Al Jones has lost the confidence of more than half of the city’s officers, according to a petition at least two police associations plan to present to city leaders Tuesday night, Nov. 30. The lack of support for the chief follows his firing of an officer in October, two days after a pursuit and fatal shooting. That decision was made with a lack of due process for Officer Robert Phillips, and before all the witnesses to the shooting had even been interviewed, according to Chris CeBallos, Presidents of the Arlington Municipal Patrolman’s Association. Officer Phillips was a 7-year veteran with the Arlington Police Department. The petition was signed by 362 out of 671 officers, according to Ceballos, who said 34 of those not signing are recruits who are not yet sworn in. Police associations gathered signatures over the past several weeks, after meeting in early November to discuss Jones’ actions and leadership. Jones, who declined to comment on the matter Tuesday, took over as the chief in January, after working with the Baltimore...

    It came swiftly, suddenly, unexpectedly: Late last month, North Arlington Police Officer Andrew Porporino was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Now Porporino, 32, who fought as a United States Marine in Afghanistan, "is fighting for his life," North Arlington PBA Local 95 President Joseph Rinzivillo wrote. The union's Civic Association is raising funds that Rinzivillo said will all go directly to help cover expenses for Porporino's treatment and recovery. "Porporino Strong" bracelets also are being sold ($10) at police headquarters. An Elmwood Park native, Porporino was graduated from Bergen Catholic High School, served his country in the Marines and joined the North Arlington force in 2019. He's married with two young children. "Andrew, his wife and his kids have a long road ahead," North Arlington Mayor Daniel Pronto wrote, "but he is a fighter and won’t give up." "We will be calling on our community for love, prayers and support during his treatment and his recovery," the mayor added.

    A Lyndhurst police officer rescued a 75-year-old North Arlington resident and her dog from an attacking pit bull. Phyllis Goodman told police she was walking her mixed breed rescue on the North Arlington side of 3rd Street and Union Avenue around 8 a.m. Thursday when the pit bull attacked. The pit apparently had gotten out through an open gate before locking its jaw on the back of her dog’s neck, Detective Lt. Vincent Auteri said. Responding to a call of a stray dog, Officer Anthony Giaquinto found Goodman on her back frantically trying to fight off the attack while shouting for help, Auteri said. Without regard for his own safety, Giaquinto grabbed the pit bull and freed Goodman’s dog, the lieutenant said. Goodman, whose son is a New York City police officer, was treated at Hackensack University Medical Center for what she said were no fewer than eight tooth punctures on both hands. Both dogs were taken to the Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital. Giaquinto, who “put himself in harm’s way to ensure the safety of one of our residents,”...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The father of a woman killed after an Arlington officer meant to shoot her dog called the incident Thursday a sign police culture needs to change. A grand jury has now indicted that former officer, Ravi Singh, on a charge the victim’s family didn’t think would happen. In the first minutes after Margarita Brooks was shot in Arlington in 2019, the confusion over how it happened was captured by Singh’s body camera. “What’s going on with her?” asked a firefighter, looking toward paramedics treating Brooks. “She was shot, from the crossfire,” Singh responded. A long, silent pause followed until Singh continued to explain the dog had run toward him and he fired the shots. The 30-year-old victim’s father, Troy, said he never thought the officer would be charged. “The police are always right” he said. “We never doubt them. So I was absolutely surprised at all. This doesn’t happen.” Brooks and attorneys representing the family see parallels with other police-involved incidents in Arlington, North Texas and around the country. “This is what we train officers to...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A Tarrant County grand jury has indicted Ravi Singh, the former Arlington police officer who fatally shot Margarita Brooks during a welfare check after firing his weapon at a dog coming toward him. They indicted him for criminally negligent homicide, which carries a punishment range of 180 days to 2 years in prison. Maggie Brooks (credit: Facebook) Brooks’ family said they welcome the charges but recognize that this is only the first step in getting justice. “We are pleased that the Tarrant County Grand Jury has returned an indictment for the officer who killed Maggie. Officers responding to welfare checks should not be so quick to use their deadly weapons in situations that do not call for use of force. Our hope is not only that this officer is held responsible for Maggie’s death, but that the Arlington Police Department is also held accountable for its lack of training and procedures in responding to welfare checks.” Ravi Singh (credit: Arlington Police Department) On August 1, Singh found the 30-year-old victim, who appeared to be passed out...
    In the midst of the national discussion about systemic racism, the Arlington County School Board will consider whether to end its practice of having police officers in schools in the Virginia county. “We have decided it is time to evaluate and examine our partnership with ACPD (Arlington County Police Department), and specifically to review our long-standing practice of school resource officers in our schools,” said Arlington County Public Schools Superintendent Francisco Duran, as he opened a video-linked discussion of Thursday’s board meeting. In a presentation, internal data from the school system shows Black and Hispanic students are disproportionately referred to law enforcement for certain offenses, compared to white students. Duran and the board pointed out discussions about equity in school safety and security started long before the death of George Floyd, a Black man, in the custody of Minneapolis police officers, in May 2020. “We are aware that while there’s a national conversation, there has been for some time a local conversation going on about the same topic,” said school board member Nancy Van Doren. “I believe we’re at a...
    ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (CBS) — The police chief in Arlington Heights has gone on record making a historic change. Chief Nick Pecora has added “duty to intervene” to the Arlington Heights Police code of conduct. According to the new rule, any officer observing another officer using force that is clearly beyond reasonable should stop it and then notify a supervisor. “These additions were made as a result of a suggestion forwarded by a member of the Arlington Heights community. AHPD maintains a ‘Duty to Report’ obligation in our Rules of Conduct. A specific directive requiring an officer to act when they observe a colleague clearly using force beyond that necessary to effect and arrest was not in print,” Pecora said in a n email to CBS 2. “Upon reflection, I felt this addition to our guiding policies will make the organization stronger and allow AHPD to continue as a best practices agency.” The specific policy language is as follows: “Any officer present and observing another officer using force that is clearly beyond that which is objectively reasonable under the...
