Play associated audio

Arlington County Police say they need to hear from people who speak Spanish, French, Mongolian, Arabic, and some African languages in addition to English.

The most recent census showed these languages are very prevalent among immigrants in Arlington.

Bilingual volunteers would most likely ride along with a patrol officer assigned to one neighborhood but might also be asked to translate during investigations elsewhere in the county. Police are asking interested volunteers for a commitment of 10 hours each month and say they can be flexible with scheduling.
