Alexandria Co-Response Pilot Program
The City of Alexandria’s Co-Response Program (ACORP) pairs a specially trained law enforcement officer and a licensed, behavioral health clinician to respond in tandem to calls for persons experiencing a behavioral health crisis. The Alexandria Co-Response Program (ACORP) is a collaborative effort between the Alexandria Police Department (APD) and the Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS). The Office of Performance Analytics is leading an ongoing evaluation of this program to assess how successfully ACORP: 1) Improves system responses to individuals experiencing behavioral health crises in the community; 2) Identifies and addresses health barriers and inequities for ACORP clients; and 3) Improves experiences and outcomes for all parties involved in behavioral health calls.

Data-Informed Fire Stations
The City's fire station optimal location study, with support from Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and OPA, analyzed the location of current and potential fire stations. The study made no recommendation on the best option; but did find that the addition of proposed station 211 may not be needed if several existing stations were moved westward when they were renovated/replaced; thus, potentially saving the City significant capital and operating funds.
