The volunteer program was established by the Chief of Police to have citizens get involved in supporting their community by volunteering their time and support to the Police Department. There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available in administrative and support activities, allowing sworn personnel to spend more of their time and specialized skills on law enforcement and crime prevention activities.
All Alexandria residents and business owners who have a building, commercial or residential alarm are required to register the alarm at the City's Alarm Prevention and Administration site, "The Cry Wolf Program": www.crywolf.us/oss/alexandriava
. Law Enforcement personnel respond to thousands of false alarm calls yearly. These unnecessary responses result in an enormous burden in manpower and expense; which in turn reduces the time available to respond to real emergencies.Cry Wolf helps the Police Department manage, and even reduce, false alarms.
