Dimitrios (Jim) Mastoras served as a Master Police Officer in Arlington County, Virginia, for almost twenty-four years. As Arlington’s first nightlife liaison, he used the relationship-based policing techniques of Proactive Alliance to establish trustful relationships with restaurant owners, providing the foundation to develop and implement strategies aimed at reducing alcohol-related violence. By using this approach, Jim developed the first accreditation program in the U.S. to focus on effective practices and law compliance for bars and restaurants while also increasing safety and economic viability.
His work for Arlington County has been recognized by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP) for saving lives and preventing injuries caused by drunk driving in the Washington, DC Metro area, and he is a recipient of the Kevin E. Quinlan Traffic Safety Award.
Jim has authored and contributed to several publications, articles and toolkits:
