From the Chief’s Desk


Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Hopefully it can be a useful resource to learn more about the services provided by the Alexandria Police Department, as well as to familiarize yourself with the men and women who serve our community.

It is the mission of the Alexandria Police Department to provide professional, high quality and effective police service in partnership with the community. We believe that our work has a vital impact on the quality of life in our community. 

We value human life by making safety our top priority and providing services above and beyond the normal duties of law enforcement. We are committed to serving with integrity and excellence. The City of Alexandria deserves the highest level of service and we strive to hold officers to the highest of standards, provide them with quality training and develop programs which specifically address the needs of citizens.

We aim to achieve our mission through cooperation within our agency, with the community, and with other local agencies and organizations.

Please free to contact me at any time should you have questions, concerns or suggestions concerning the way in which we serve the community. I always look forward to meeting and building relationships with those around our community so that we can grow and improve. Thank you for helping us through your continued support.

Chief Lucas T. Cooper
