Our Arrest Information page lists all adults who were arrested by members of the Prince William County Police Department during the previous month. This page is updated once a week to include the most recent arrest information available. The list may not be complete due to the time it takes to process the paperwork or because of an ongoing investigation. The listing can be viewed by date of arrest or in alphabetical order by last name. To view the Arrest Information available, please click here.

Cold Case Corner

The Cold Cases Corner lists all murder cases that remain unsolved and are not part of a recent investigation. These cases date back to the early 1970's and most leads in the investigations have been exhausted. Investigators are requesting information from the public that can aid in an arrest or other significant development in these investigations. We hope to one day give the families of these victims closure and bring their killers to justice. This page is currently under construction, please visit again soon.
