We are saddened to report the passing of retired K9 Zara, partner of K9 Officer Steve Escobar. K-9 Zara was adopted by Officer Steven Escobar in September 2013 from the Alexandria Animal Shelter. She exhibited all of the characteristics to become a police canine. Officer Escobar donated her to the Police Department and she began her initial training in April of 2014. She successfully graduated patrol school in August 2014. K9 Zara would also become an Explosive Ordinance Detector and with Officer Escobar conducted hundreds of searches for major city events and also assisted other jurisdictions including Arlington in securing major events such as the Marine Core Marathon. During her time with the Alexandria Police Department , K-9 Zara and Officer Escobar won the triple crown award in 2015, 2018, and 2019 which is the highest honor given to a K-9 team that certifies in patrol, tracking and detection all within a calendar year. K9 Zara retired in March 2020 after serving the city for 7 years. Officer Escobar now has a new partner, K9 Stella.

We will miss K9 Zara deeply. She was a great partner and loved by all who met her. Police Department, City of Alexandria, Virginia Animal Welfare League

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.

🐶 Got a sweet tooth but love to recycle? Don’t get your snickers in a twist! We've got you!

🐶 Here is our guide to tasty eco-packaged candies.

🐶 What's the issue with candy wrappers? Many candy wrappers are made from a combination of plastic and aluminum. This makes the wrappers hard to recycle, and most recycling facilities won't accept them. The good news is that are lots of yummy alternatives out there.

1️⃣ Go for foil
Foil can easily be recycled, making sweets like Hershey's Kisses a fabulous option.

2️⃣ Get candy in bulk
You can buy loose candy at some stores where they will pop it in a recyclable paper bag for you. It's not the ideal choice for Halloween or parties as the individual candy isn't wrapped, but it’s great if you fancy a cheeky bag of sweets all to yourself!

3️⃣ Buy candy in a paper box
Ah, Milk Duds. Is a trip to the movies complete without them? The great news is the paper box that this candy comes in can be recycled. So, if you're looking for green packaging, Nerds, Hot Tamales, Lemon Heads and Milk Duds are fantastic choices.

🐶 Candy packaging is evolving all the time with companies coming up with lots of innovative ideas. Use your to encourage companies to continue down this path!

🐶 With the fun of Halloween around the corner, we’re calling upon our spooky friends and followers to remember to reuse and recycle Halloween costumes.

🐶 According to the New York Times, more than 60% of fabric fibers are now synthetics made from fossil fuels.

🐶 So, these plastic fabric fibers will not decay if they end up in landfills, and their chemicals leach into our streams, rivers, and oceans.

🐶 Tag us with your dog’s recycled/upcycled costume!

🐶 Tomorrows-Trees.org (a program of the Potomac Conservancy) challenges the community to an acorn driven scavenger hunt!

🐶Why? To help reforest the Potomac River region by planting millions of trees for healthy rivers and streams.

🐶 Grab your kids and go seed hunting in the beautiful and historic Arlington National Cemetery, 10/15, 10 am –12 pm. Follow this link for more info: https://bit.ly/3RG3TrD and follow for updates!

🐶 Forests act as nature’s best defenders of clean water in the Potomac River by filtering out toxins and improving water quality.

🐶 In the Chesapeake Bay region, 70 acres of forest disappear every day from development.

🐶 Native trees to our region are the most resilient towards many types of insects and diseases, and they support rich biodiversity.

🐶 Join this fun effort to collect and identify seeds, all of which will go to the Virginia Department of Forestry State Nursery to grow the trees of tomorrow.
