The CRC Welcome Series was launched in the fall of 2023, timed around National Welcoming Week (September 8-17) and bringing together various community groups to include a new resident welcoming component in their respective programming. If you are a new or newer UA resident, we hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to learn more about your hometown of choice! Watch for plans for our 2024 UA Welcome Series early in the New Year.
UA Police & Community Relations Introduction for New Residents & Immigrants

Lower Level Meeting Room
Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road
UA Police | upperarlingtonoh.gov
Our community relations officers in the Police Division are planning to host one of their introductory sessions, tailored to new or newer residents and immigrants. Recognizing that an unplanned encounter with a police officer can be an intimidating experience for anyone, this program will help attendees better understand the methodology and goals that guide officers in their interactions with community members.
