East Division

The East Division encompasses portions of Council District 4, 8 and the majority of District 5. At the center of the Division is George District where you’ll find a diverse group of neighborhoods to include Poly, Stop Six, West Meadowbrook, Central Meadowbrook, Eastern Hills, Carver Heights and others. In Henry District, the diversity continues with White Lake Hills, Woodhaven, Ryanwood, Handley, Bentley-Waterchase, the River Trails communities and many more. Regardless of the neighborhood you encounter, you’ll find a passionate group of homeowners that are committed to working hand-in-hand with their Police Department to improve their communities.

The East Division stretches from Beach Street to the Airport and is full of history and opportunity, no matter which route you take to get there. With Texas Wesleyan University, the University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute, American Airlines Corporation, and Bell Helicopter all within our borders, the East Division is not only a great place to expand your education, but also a great place to live and work. Whether you’re passing through to see the many public works of art in the Division, looking for a local shop to spend your afternoon, or looking to enjoy some great barbeque, the East Division has it all and is open for business.

Status Indicators Defined

On target

A green arrow indicates that the goal is on target to be accomplished by their estimated completion date. “On target” items may also be ongoing items continuously being implemented by the department.

Lagging goalA yellow square indicates that the goal is lagging and needs to be monitored in the near term to ensure that the goal can be completed within the specified timeline.

Insufficient progressA red arrow indicates that the goal has insufficient progress needed to meet the specified timeline. A red status should not be interpreted as failure—it simply means that the goal or action item needs more attention to ensure that the specified timeline can be met. Please note that external factors can play a role in the inability to meet timelines such as funding and staffing.

Being monitoredA blue circle indicates that the goal is currently being monitored and that the implementation of that goal is expected to start in a future quarter or year. Please note that external factors can play a role in the inability to meet timelines such as funding and staffing.
