Alexandria Police Department Headquarters

A Modern Civic Landmark Revitalizes a City

The new Alexandria Police Department Headquarters consolidates the services of three existing facilities into one central location for approximately 500 law enforcement personnel. Designed in association with Dewberry, the headquarters establishes a modern civic landmark to serve the citizens of Alexandria for the foreseeable future, and helps revitalize an underutilized section of the city.

The four-story headquarters is designed to be functional and secure. It accommodates space for:

  • An advanced criminal investigations laboratory
  • Secure property and evidence storage
  • A dedicated community meeting area
  • A state-of-the-art emergency communications center shared by the city's police and fire departments.

Spaces are arranged around a public atrium that provides natural daylight throughout the occupied floors and serves as the main entrance to the facility.
