"The mission of the Alexandria Police Department's Tactical Anti Crime (TAC) Unit is to improve the quality of life for the citizens of Alexandria by proactively combating street level criminal offenses and apprehending fugitives."

The TAC Unit was created through a reorganization of the Street Crimes Unit in an effort to address the changing nature of how we respond to crime as an organization.  The TAC Unit enables the Department to very quickly provide proactive responses to such issues, while more comprehensive and sustainable strategies are developed by the supporting Patrol and investigative units.

The TAC Unit's primary activities focus on street level criminal offenses, narcotics offenses, fugitive investigations, nuisance crimes, undercover operations, gang enforcement (in conjunction with the Gang Unit) and search warrant executions for other investigative units.
