To address this discussion with facts, Shane Curcuru of Arlington, with help from some friends, has provided some comparative data about Arlington and comparable towns showing that town police work under a reasonably lean budget.

That budget includes one social worker, who is not a sworn or uniformed officer, who works in the department.
