Criminal Investigation Section

The Criminal Investigations Section (CIS) is a functional entity of the Investigations Bureau of the Alexandria Police Department commanded by two Lieutenants.  The CIS commanders report directly to the captain of the Investigations Bureau.  The Investigations Commander, in turn, reports directly to the Deputy Chief of Police. 

The section is divided into two subsections, the Crimes Against Persons Section and the Property and Financial Crime Section.  Each is comprised of the following units:  Violent Crimes Unit, Gang Unit, Property Crimes Unit, Youth Unit, Financial and Computer Crimes Unit and the Domestic Violence Unit.  Each of these units is supervised by a sergeant.

Please visit the APD's Most Wanted page for information on wanted violent offenders. You may be able to help locate a fugitive. 

APD's Cold Case page highlights unsolved homicides that are still under investigation. You may have a tip we need to solve a case.

Hours of Operation: 

The section works from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
