Arlington Police Abandon Neighborhoods to Provide Pub Crawl Security


Hey Yupette,

Chief Doug Scott may have retired from the Arlington Police Department but it's still the same old ACPD. Residential neighborhoods have been stripped of police officers for the past two weeks to provide security for St. Patrick's Day celebrations in the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor which are going to morph into March Madness next week, after the St. Paddy's Day Mega Crawl on March 21st. ACPD has had a command post set up in the B-R corridor since March 13th and it will remain until after the NCAA Championship Game on April 6th.

So be sure to lock your vehicle, put personal belongings out of sight in the trunk or locked storage compartment, keep bicycles indoors, turn on security lighting, and watch out for strangers in your neighborhood looking for things to steal and neighbors to rob. Those of us who live in residential neighborhoods that are not in the B-R corridor are on our own until after April 6th.

ACPD can't drive through my neighborhood fast enough on their way to where the "action" is...Whitlows.

If your locked vehicle is broken into Saturday night the cops will get around to taking a report and telling you to be more careful about where you park on Monday morning.

You are 100% correct. Arlington will be a thieves' paradise the next 3 weeks.

ACPD is 100% reactive. So is there much difference between pub crawl weekends and non pub crawl weekends?

Arlington in 1975 - Don't like the police? Next time you need help, call a hippie.

Arlington in 2015 - Need help from the police? They're on Wilson Blvd., hanging out with the hipsters.

Don't like the way I ride my bicycle during a pub crawl? Keep your kid's stroller off the sidewalk.

Pub crawls are vacations for cops. Know how boring it gets being constantly dispatched to 'whites only' neighborhoods to check out false complaints against people (not all of them minorities) that 'community leaders' don't happen to like?

It's only Friday nite and already lots of passed out and DWI hipsters on Wilson.

I live on Irving Street, not all that far from Wilson Blvd. Police are in my neighborhood every weekend with vehicles they pulled over for suspected DWI.

Shamrock Pub Crawl is a event for 20-somethings and cops who want to arrest 20-somethings.

Shamrock pub crawl is Spring Break for Arlington's cops who usually spend their time chasing minorities around Ballston and Pentagon City.

ACPD is bragging about crime being way down. Big Deal. Everyone who doesn't have a security clearance has been gentrified out of the County.

I live in a suburb of a city that has not that has not yet been trashed by 'smart growth' and you can be assured that I will be the first to move away if 'smart growth' ever gets going here.

LOL, Jeff. Ain't it the truth?

Smart Growth sucks...pub crawls are another reason why.

Incredible !! Hundreds of County employees collecting overtime today for this event. I thought the promoters were supposed to pay. We are talking a couple hundred thousand dollars.

What a zoo...and it's still early afternoon.

People...don't drive anywhere near this event! It's just a pretext for the Arlington Police to stop your vehicle for any reason or for no reason.

It's not a pub crawl, it's a DWI enforcement opportunity.

Thanks keeping us informed about vibrant smart growth activities in one of America's primary Yuptard zoos.

Don't drive the B-R Corridor tonight. Knucklehead cops are everywhere pulling anyone over for anything.

Last night in Clarendon was the worst. New Arlington police chief acts like he was recently deputy chief of the Ferguson PD.

Apparently, Chief Murray Farr lives in Ashburn.

Chief Murray J. Farr lives in Ashburn. Annointed by County Board Chair Gerald J. Fisette and County Manager Donnellan last year.

Very interesting comments by all. Last time I checked, it was the 21 to 35 years of age crowd that participated in the bar crawls causing the police to spend so much time and energy and effort working in those areas. I have no doubt, Arlington be more than happy to have no bar crawls.

Chief Farr is a lame duck. He should go back to flying in helicopters and looking good in his dress blues... He sucks as the top cop.
