The services provided by Field Operations Bureau (FOB) range from
preliminary investigations of crimes to problem solving complex quality of
life issues. Officers provide these services 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week and are assigned to one of three Divisions. The divisions consist
of Patrol Officers, Community Policing Officers, Residential Policing
Officers, Canine Officers, Traffic Safety Officers and Motorcycle
Officers. While on patrol, FOB Officers focus on outstanding
public service with an emphasis on proactive responses to neighborhood crime
and public order issues. The dedicated men and women of the Field
Operations Bureau (FOB) are virtuous law enforcement professionals who
stand prepared, ready and vigilant to protect and serve our community. They are
committed to providing high-quality community-oriented policing
services, while holding true to APD's mission and values. The FOB teams
will expeditiously respond to all emergency and non-emergency calls for
assistance from the community. We commit ourselves to improve quality of
life in Alexandria through education and enforcement of criminal
and traffic codes.
The Alexandria Police Department is dedicated to fair, compassionate and respectful treatment of all people who seek police services, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion or sexual orientation.
