Hispanic Community Outreach Unidos is an Hispanic community outreach program designed to provide assistance to Spanish-speaking residents in Arlington. Unidos Meetings are held every quarter and conducted entirely in Spanish. Topics for discussion are driven by the community, based on needs and interests. Unidos Unidos is hosted by the Arlington Police Department with additional support from City of Arlington departments. We believe in two- way communication and the promo- tion of trust between the police and the community we serve. What can you expect at a Unidos Meeting? Meetings feature speakers and topics that are not necessarily police related. Subjects of interest can vary with relevance to the His- panic community. Meetings focus on improving the quality of life for Spanish-speaking residents and families. Unidos acts as a resource information center. Spanish speaking officers are also available to meet one-on-one with resi- dents to help them find answers to questions or solutions to individual needs. Unidos involves the par- ticipation of Hispanic community leaders, bilingual employees from other City of Arlington departments, and Spanish-speaking profession- als from across the community.
