Alexandria Police Launch New Online Crime Search Database
On November 6, the Alexandria Police Department will launch a new searchable online crime database through crimereports.com. The crimereports.com Website was developed to help increase awareness and knowledge of City wide and neighborhoods crime trends and patterns. Through the Alexandria Police Department’s partnership with crimereports.com, residents will be able to search and view Alexandria crime data using an online Geographic Information System. To access crimereports.com, visit www.alexandriava.gov/police.
The crimereports.com Website allows residents to view crime for an entire region, neighborhood or block. The data represented on crimereports.com, extracted from the Alexandria Police Department’s Records Management System, is broken out into several general categories on the crimereports.com site. This data represents crimes that have been reported to the Alexandria Police Department.
“The upgrades and enhancements of crimereports.com provide the opportunity to access neighborhood crime information in an easy, informative and convenient format,” said Chief David Baker. “It is another way we can continue to provide useful information that empowers our residents to help us help them reduce crime and improve quality of life in all of Alexandria's communities. I encourage residents to provide feedback on this new crime fighting tool.”
