Please join ACPD as we honor the service and sacrifice of Special Police Officer Louis Shaw who was killed in the line of duty on this date in 1935.

While transporting a prisoner on December 6, 1935, Special Police Officer Louis Shaw died when a gasoline tanker struck his patrol car on what was then Jefferson Davis Highway. Officer Shaw was pinned inside his vehicle when it burst into flames. Since his death preceded the 1940 creation of the ACPD, his line-of-duty death was never formally recognized. At the time he was killed, he was serving as a frontline police officer under the Arlington County Circuit Court. Many of these court-appointed officers became the founding members of the ACPD.

Nearly 70 years later, Officer Shaw’s name was added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., and The Arlington County Board passed a resolution on April 19, 2005, recognizing Officer Shaw’s sacrifice.

Arlington County has lost seven of its heroic police officers while in the line of duty. To learn more about their acts of valor, visit our Hall of Honor: https://www.arlingtonva.us/Government/Departments/Police-Department/About-ACPD/Hall-of-Honor

UPDATED PRESS RELEASE ON HOME EXPLOSION INVESTIGATION

The Arlington County Police Department, in cooperation with the Northern Virginia Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT), the Arlington County Fire Department and our federal law enforcement partners continue to investigate a home explosion in the 800 block of N. Burlington Street which occurred on the evening of December 4, 2023.

Based on the preliminary investigation of the incident, we believe the resident of the home, James Yoo, 56, of Arlington, VA is the involved suspect. The suspect was inside the residence at the time of the explosion. Human remains have been located at the scene which are presumed to be the suspect. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will work to positively identify the individual and determine cause and manner of death. Our investigation has now transferred into a recovery operation as we work to collect and process evidence. There is no ongoing threat to the community related to this incident and no outstanding suspects.

ARLINGTON COUNTY POLICE ISSUE PRELIMINARY STATEMENT ON HOME EXPLOSION

At approximately 4:45 p.m. on December 4, the Arlington County Police Department was dispatched to the 800 block of N. Burlington Street for the report of possible shots heard. The preliminary investigation indicated a suspect discharged a flare gun approximately 30 – 40 times from inside his residence into the surrounding neighborhood. No property damage or injuries were reported related to the discharge of the flare gun.

During the course of the investigation, officers obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence and attempted to make contact with the suspect over the telephone and through loudspeakers. The suspect did not respond and remained barricaded inside the residence. As officers were attempting to execute the search warrant, the suspect discharged several rounds, from what is believed to be a firearm, inside the home. Subsequently, at approximately 8:25 p.m., an explosion occurred at the residence. The investigation into the circumstances of the explosion are ongoing.

The Arlington County Fire Department responded to the scene to extinguish the fire. As of approximately 10:30 p.m., the fire is under control and crews continue to battle small spot fires.

Three officers reported minor injuries and there were no transports to the hospital related to this incident. The investigation is ongoing.

The Arlington County Police Department is now accepting applications for the 28th Community Police Academy (CPA). The CPA is an educational program designed to provide an opportunity to enhance the lines of communication and understanding between police and members of the Arlington community. The goal of the CPA is to share knowledge and information with participants that allows them to recognize the roles and responsibilities of the Arlington County Police Department.

Through an immersive, multi-week experience, 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. The program includes lectures, panel discussions, question and answer sessions, and hands-on experiences, including a special off-site session on a Saturday outside of Arlington County. Classes are presented by Departmental leadership, sworn and civilian staff from across the agency and government partners. Participants will engage in thought-provoking discussions, including those about current events and effective policing practices, and can ask questions of presenters throughout the program. Some of the topics covered in the CPA curriculum include recruitment, legal considerations, use of force, mental health interventions, homeless outreach, community and youth outreach, criminal investigations, the K9 unit, tactical operations, and patrol operations.

For additional information and to complete the online application, due by Friday, December 29, visit our Newsroom: https://www.arlingtonva.us/About-Arlington/Newsroom/Articles/2023/Police-Now-Accepting-Applications-to-the-28th-Community-Police-Academy

The Arlington County Police Department’s Homicide/Robbery Unit is investigating a shooting which occurred on the evening of November 20, 2023.

At approximately 7:42 p.m., police were dispatched to the 3100 block of Langston Boulevard for the report of an assault with a weapon. Upon arrival, officers located the adult male victim in the passenger seat of a parked vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds.

The preliminary investigation indicates the victim and a witness were driving on Richmond Highway when the suspect vehicle, which had two occupants, pulled alongside them and a verbal dispute over driving ensued. In the area of Richmond Highway and Memorial Avenue, an occupant of the suspect vehicle brandished a firearm and discharged rounds, striking the victim. Following the shooting, the driver of the victim vehicle traveled to the 3100 block of Langston Boulevard and sought help.

The suspect vehicle is described as a black sedan. The driver is described as a Black female with shoulder length hair. The passenger is described as a Black male wearing a face mask.

This remains an active criminal investigation and anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact the Arlington County Police Department’s Tip Line at 703-228-4180 or [email protected] or anonymously through the Arlington County Crime Solvers hotline at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
