The mission of the Alexandria Police Department is to provide competent, courteous, professional and community oriented police services.
Alexandria maintains a modern, highly trained, technically skilled, energetic, diverse and well-equipped police department, with a current authorized strength of 320 sworn and 138 civilian employees. Our staff provides courteous, efficient and timely service to residents, visitors and businesses in our City.
The Alexandria Police Department has been internationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since 1986 and was reaccredited in 1991, 1996, 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010 and 2013. This is a significant accomplishment for the men and women of the department.
