Field Operations Bureau

The Field Operations Bureau provides the most visible police services to the community. Officers assigned to the Field Operations Bureau are those with whom the public is most likely to come in contact. They respond to emergencies, alarms, reports of crimes, calls for service and provide traffic enforcement.

The services provided range from preliminary investigations of major 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 below patrol sectors. While on patrol, officers focus on outstanding public service with an emphasis on proactive responses to neighborhood crime and public order issues.

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.
