While Thursday was National First Responders Day, we recognized all of our first responders with a week long event. Hot Cocoa and Coffee Bar with cider, cookies and fixings for the drinks, and a Cereal Bar with cereal, oatmeal and Pop Tarts. By far the Pop Tarts were the the biggest hit! Who knew??? 😀 we ended the week today with goody bags for everyone. We appreciate our staff, both sworn and civilians couldn’t do it without them! Police Department, City of Alexandria, Virginia

At a Northern Virginia high school, brotherhood and policing through soccer

While this article in the Washington Post was written two years ago, it still is true today. Former SROs, Johnny and Gary, are no longer at Alexandria City High School (TC Williams HS) but they are still coaching soccer for students at the school. The kids are playing in the Alexandria Soccer fall league and doing great. We are happy to be able to support Johnny, Gary and the kids. This is not Johnny and Gary's assignment at APD but they want to continue building the relationships they had last year. Police Department, City of Alexandria, Virginia

Thank you to the Alexandria Police Camp Board and Sgt. Lennon for putting on this great event. It is always great to raise money to send kids to camp!

The Alexandria Police Youth Camp hosted its "Send A Kid to Camp" Golf Classic today. Thank you to the APYC board, especially Sgt. Lennon, for putting on a great event!

More than 20,000 kids have attended camp, which was founded by a group of APD officers in 1947. Police department employees volunteer hundreds of hours each year to support the camp.

Our Story

The Alexandria Police Foundation (APF) is focused on its main mission of supporting the work of the men and women who serve every day to make Alexandria the safe place it is to live, work, play and visit. We focus on three specific areas:

· K-9s – APF pays for medical insurance and medical bills not covered by insurance for our retired 4-legged K-9 officers. The APF also supports our active 4-legged officers by providing them equipment over and above their budget.

· Kids – In 1936, the idea of a camp was born when officers from the Alexandria Police Department, along with a sports reporter for the Alexandria Gazette, decided to find a place for the children of Alexandria during the summer. The Alexandria Police Association endorsed the idea and in 1947 the 97-acre camp opened in Kilmarnock, VA. APF supports sending 20 children to camp each year.

Going on now, APD’s Special Operations Team gives a rappel demonstration to attendees of the Community Police Academy. Interested in attending the academy next spring? Check out https://www.alexandriava.gov/56228 The Police Academy is sponsored by the Alexandria Police Foundation.
Here’s a first hand look into the crime stat manipulating, bullying within the department, and anti LGBTQ that goes on with the Alexandria City Police Department. 100% facts with screen shots and FOIA’s. Chief Brown and Chief Hayes created a culture I’d seek and destroy anyone who opposed their policies and commanders followed suit with fake Facebook accounts, lying on employment references, and denying unemployment claims leaving former officers destitute during COVID. Some “transparent” agency. This book is #1 after just two days, why? Cause across the country departments like this get away with it like Warrenton Police Department keeping an EEOC investigation out of public light, or a commander/supervisor getting a rookie pregnant.

Saw this beautiful one at mission BBQ and was wondering if their are any available for purchase.
I have no words for the Alexandria City Police Department. My daughter and her dog were struck by a car at my apartment building (Pavilion on the Park) on 2 January 2020 at 1715 hours. The police/fire/EMS showed up and talked to my daughter and the woman driving the car at length. My daughter was quite upset and bruised badly on her knee and leg and her dog was limping. The EMS checked her out and wanted to take her to the ER. She opted to not do that right then because her dog was limping and crying. She was alone and scared. I arrived a few minutes later (I was on my way home from work) and the Officer told her that she could go the hospital after we got her dog to the Vet. The Officer said he would write a police report for her. THEN they changed their minds. Said it happened on private property and were not required to write a police report. REALLY? after she contacted the Lt, the police stated they would write a report. she got the report yesterday. IT IS NOT EVEN A REPORT. It has no information at all. WHAT A WASTE of TIME! ALEXANDRIA CITY POLICE are not helping the people who need their help. Sorry she wasn't broken enough for you to care! I am stuck paying a bunch of medical bills for both her and her dog. I really can't believe that they couldn't take the 5 minutes to document what happened. They are not even admitting that she was hit. WHAT BS. Alexandria City POLICE are not very good at their jobs. It is sad that they don't care about the people they are supposed to help.
Thanks apd like wise u all besafe!
Although I won't be going on the K9 cruise, I'm wondering if I can buy, or make a donation to APF, in order to get one of the 2018 calendars.
