The Alexandria Police Department reports that total Part 1 crime increased by 1.2% or 39 offenses, in calendar year 2013. Despite this slight increase, Alexandria continues to experience historic crime lows in Alexandria.  These remain some of the lowest Part 1 crimes the City has experienced since 1966.  Homicide, rape, aggravated assault, and larceny increased in 2013; while robberies, burglaries and auto thefts decreased.

"Although overall Part 1 crime increased slightly in 2013, continued reductions were achieved in three of the seven Part 1 crime categories which are noteworthy. I am pleased that the City of Alexandria has continued to experience historic crime lows. In 2013, the sworn, civilian, and volunteer staff worked tirelessly to protect Alexandria; we could not do that without the support we receive from the community and City agencies. We remain committed to keeping crime low and maintaining a safe community,” stated Earl L. Cook, Chief of Police.
