Community Volunteer Network Monthly Meetup


Hope to see you out at Community Volunteer Network's September meetup which will be held this coming Tuesday at Yaku in Courthouse. Community Volunteer Network is an Arlington group of 20 and 30 somethings that volunteer on evenings and weekends. They've got lots of volunteer events coming up in September and will have sign up sheets and more information at the meetup.

Yaku was recently named one of the best new restaurants by Northern Virginia Magazine and it is located on the corner of Clarendon Blvd and N. Scott Street. The closest metro stop is Court House, on the orange line.

For more information about Yaku and to view their Happy Hour specials, please visit: http://www.latinconcepts.com/yaku

If you are considering applying to serve as a volunteer (auxiliary) police officer in Arlington, think carefully before you proceed.

Arlington County Virginia's auxiliary police program is presently the subject of two Americans With Disabilities Act complaints. The complaints arise from the case of an auxiliary (volunteer) officer who suffered a concussion while participating in a police fundraising event and was terminated due to his concussion. One case is being handled by the county manager's office, while the other is being handled by the US Department of Justice.

The complaints allege that Arlington County ignored the officer'srequest for reasonable accommodation and his offer to provide medical documentation of fitness for duty, but instead terminated him solely because of a statement from the officer that, according to his neurologist, effects from a concussion could occur as much as 18 months following an injury. According to the complaints, Arlington
County neither asked for, nor received, details regarding the officer's individual diagnosis or prognosis. Additionally, the police department did not offer leave or other accommodations short of termination.

Details of the complaints are available at http://acpddiscriminates.blogspot.com/.
