"Although overall Part 1 crime increased slightly in 2013, continued reductions were achieved in three of the seven Part 1 crime categories which are noteworthy. I am pleased that the City of Alexandria has continued to experience historic crime lows. In 2013, the sworn, civilian, and volunteer staff worked tirelessly to protect Alexandria; we could not do that without the support we receive from the community and City agencies. We remain committed to keeping crime low and maintaining a safe community,” stated Earl L. Cook, Chief of Police.
