    Alexandria Police Begin Photo Safety Program

    On Monday, August 1, the Alexandria Police Department will begin the second phase of the Photo Safety Program to help reduce red-light violations and crashes throughout the City.  Photo enforcement cameras will capture still images and video of red-light violators.  Fines will be issued for all citations.  This comes following a 31-day warning period from July 1 to July 31.  During this warning period, a warning notice was issued to the vehicle’s registered owner for any violations but no fine was assessed. 
    The photo-enforcement cameras are located at three intersections:
    • South Patrick Street and Franklin Street
    • South Patrick Street and Gibbon Street
    • Duke Street and South Walker Street

    Cameras will operate 24 hours a day and capture images of every vehicle running the red-lights at those intersections.  Warning signs alerting drivers to the red-light cameras have been installed prior to the warning period.

    The Alexandria Police Department’s program is administered by Redflex Traffic Systems (http://www.redflex.com).  Each violation will be reviewed and approved by the Alexandria Police Department prior to being issued.

    For more information contact the Public Information Office at 703.838.4636.

    To All Concerned,

    I am attempting to identify the identity of the person that maybe responsible for committing a series of distraction type larcenies from boutique style businesses, located along the King Street corridor. 

    We believe this is the same person possibly responsible for going around into the OLD TOWN area shops, entering the businesses, politely asking the shop employees to retrieve a store item to cause a distraction of some sort to create the opportunity to steal a wallets or money from either the back room or front counter.  Please use the attached poster to make your employees aware of the suspect’s characteristics. info poster 11-121029.pdf  or info poster _ 11-037 Polite Thief.pdf

    We need the public’s help!!

    PLEASE KEEP ALL YOUR PERSONAL BELONGINGS AND MONEY SECURED AT ALL TIMES.  

    Your cooperation Is needed to stop this person from criminal acts.     

    PLEASE, IF THIS PERSON ENTERS YOUR BUSINESS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.   

    Thank you for your cooperation,
