The Alexandria Police Department is asking the public to help locate Ibrahm Elkahlil Bouaichi (pronounced EE-brahm El-ka-lil Boo-AH-chee), who is wanted for the July 29 murder of Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez. Bouaichi is described as 33 year-old man of Middle Eastern descent, 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing approximately 180 pounds. Bouaichi should be considered armed and dangerous, and poses a potential threat to anyone who comes into contact with him.

Bouaichi was last known to be driving a stolen, black, 2013 Nissan Altima sedan with Maryland tags 1CN3103. Below is a stock photo of the type of vehicle.

Anyone with information regarding Bouaichi’s whereabouts is asked to call the Alexandria Police Department immediately at 703.746.6751. Anyone who sees or comes into contact with Bouaichi should call 911 immediately. In some places, including in Alexandria, you can text 911 if you can't call. Anyone with information about the July 29 murder or Bouaichi’s whereabouts may provide it anonymously.

On July 29, 2020, at 6:20 a.m., the Alexandria Police Department responded to a call regarding shots fired on S. Greenmount Drive. Officers found a deceased woman with gunshot wounds on her upper body, who was later identified as Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez. The case is under investigation, and no arrests have been made. Anyone with information regarding this incident should call 703.746.6751.

This was the first homicide in Alexandria in 2020.

DID YOU KNOW? :: Alexandria Police Department's 150 year anniversary is this Wednesday! Below is a picture of the first Police Chief, Chief James Webster. Chief Webster served from 1870 until 1906. “When the Alexandria Police Department was officially orga-nized in 1870, James F. Webster became its first chief, with the rank of Captain, and earned $ 600 annually. Webster oversaw police operations, organized raids of gambling establishments, arrested drunks and murderers, and investigated thefts, shootings, and even grave robberies. He served as chief until 1906, when his health began to fail, but he remained as a desk sergeant until he died in 1910."

#FactCheckFriday Although dates of emancipation vary from state to state, June 19th has come to be celebrated throughout the United States as a day to commemorate the end of slavery. Why this date? In 1865, General Granger announced that the enslaved people in Texas were free. Texans began celebrating Juneteenth in 1866; Alexandrians have celebrated since 1889 on different days of the year and in different months.

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.

· COPS – APF supports the Community Oriented Policing Section (COPS) of the Alexandria Police Department. Officers are assigned to introduce young people in the City to the police department in a positive way. They do this with help from APF by providing meals at Thanksgiving to underprivileged families; shop with a COP pairs officers with a child to shop for a toy for him or her; community events where officers bring out an ice cream cart and hot dogs to distribute to children; COPS officers take kids to sporting games such as the Washington Nationals ball games, Wizards basketball games, and more during the year. In 2016 COPS added Easter and Halloween events to the growing list of engagement opportunities.

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.
