Message from the ChiefCook Picture 2009 Resize

On behalf of the over 400 dedicated members of the Alexandria Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the Alexandria Police Department’s web site.

I am extremely proud that Alexandria continues to be one of the safest places to live in the nation.  That success is due to the outstanding efforts of the men and women of the Alexandria Police Department and the community’s vigilance and cooperation in crime prevention.

While having faced many recent challenges, I am optimistic that the Department will meet them with unity and tenacity, working side-by-side to enhance the quality of life of our residents. As the Department moves ahead, I look forward to providing the best police service possible.  I am optimistic that this Department will continue on the path of excellence as we continue to address the needs of our diverse community with professionalism and determination.  As we develop programs, implement technology and take on new initiatives, know that our department regards the City’s residents as its highest priority.

I want to thank the police officers and the civilians who support them.  Together they accomplish one of the most basic duties of the police department: keeping Alexandria safe.  I recognize their compassion, dedication and desire to serve their community.  Additionally, I would like to thank the City Manager and his staff, the Mayor and City Council, City Communications staff, City Department Heads, Sheriff Dana Lawhorne, Fire Chief Adam Thiel, Commonwealth's Attorney Randy Sengel and our extraordinarily supportive residents without whom we would not be able to provide effective and professional police service.

I look forward to leading the Department in this time of transition.  I want to assure the community that this is a change in leadership, not direction.  The men and women of the Alexandria Police Department are the best in the nation, and we will build on our traditions of professionalism, innovation and compassion.

Sincerely,

Cook Signature
