Remembering K9 Gracie today. 6 years ago, Gracie crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Gracie will never be forgotten.......

Today the Alexandria Police Department said good-bye to our beloved K-9 Gracie as she went over the "rainbow bridge". Gracie was first diagnosed with cancer in November 2013. She persevered and continued to work until the very end with her partner, Officer Steve Escobar. Over the course of 2014, Gracie was featured in several NBC Washington stories about her fighting spirit.

Gracie gave up her fight today and she will be greatly missed. Please keep Officer Escobar and his family in your thoughts and prayers. He not only lost his partner, but a member of their family.

Thank you to everyone who came out today to donate a toy to a child in need! We truly appreciate all you do!

CRWC members showed up today to support the Alexandria Police as they held a toy drive in the parking lot at Potomac Yard. It was a beautiful day to spread joy with our very own Bill and Ruth Cleveland. Bill is a retired Police Officer with the Capitol Hill Police Department and a former Vice Mayor of Alexandria. Bill heard about the Police Department’s toy drive and encouraged us to support it enthusiastically, so we did! Dolls, tea sets, toy cars, games, and more! We are smiling underneath our masks!

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.

My Grandfather, Sgt. Henry F. Grimm in 1942.
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.
