Weekly Activity Highlights for March 15 - 21, 2015

Weekly Tip - Comments or Questions? Use Arcadia Advocacy!

The City of Arcadia offers an informative website and is constantly looking to improve accessibility to our community. One link on the website is to Arcadia Advocacy. This link allows the user to submit concerns, questions, and comments on any given topic to the City. The post is forwarded to the appropriate Department or person within the City and the post is then reviewed. We make every attempt to respond in a timely manner and address the issue at hand.

At the Police Department, many of the posts are simple questions that we can usually handle rather quickly. Some comments are more involved and require a little research or action on the part of APD. Feedback from the community is one key to constantly improving our services. Please remember comments or posts via Arcadia Advocacy are not in lieu of police reports for documentation of crime or other incidents. 

Arcadia Advocacy comments can be sent anonymously or with contact information. Obviously, we encourage you to leave a name and contact information so that we can follow-up with the issue. Arcadia Advocacy is just another outreach to improve relations and our service delivery.
