The men and women of the Patrol Division perform the most visible and recognized function of the Alexandria Police Department. They are the ones that respond to citizen’s calls for service and are seen every day on the street in a police cruiser, looking for lost children, comforting victims of a crime or arresting an intoxicated driver.
The patrol function includes the responsibility for responding to requests for emergency and non-emergency police service, deterrence of crime, initial investigation, evidence collection, traffic collision investigation and the issuance of traffic violation citations to encourage voluntary compliance with existing traffic laws.
The men and women of the patrol division are the “backbone” of the department and are front-line ambassadors. We continue to search for a means to accomplish our goals and missions. We are a community-based police department, fostering a partnership with our local citizens, business owners and support agencies in the county and state.
