Alexandria, Louisiana – Mayor's Office

Alexandria, Louisiana – Mayor's Office Located in the heart of Louisiana, Alexandria is quickly emerging as one of the nation's best places to start a business, raise a family, and explore the great outdoors.

Alexandria is situated on the banks of the Red River. Our city offers plenty of amenities including boating, skiing, fishing, camping, hunting and other outdoor recreational activities. We also boast an acclaimed zoo, world-class golf courses, historic homes, Kistachie National Forest, great shopping and entertainment. If you are looking for a great place that feels like home while you visit our state, Alexandria is the place to be. As we like to say, "You can see Louisiana from here." Our city is within two hours of Shreveport and Baton Rouge, a little over three hours from New Orleans, and less than an hour from historic Natchitoches along the Cane River. A visit to historic Natchez, Miss., just across the great Mississippi River, is only 90 minutes away as well.

Mission: Alexandria is the heart of the state and the hub of activity for Central Louisiana. Here, we enjoy the warmth and community of small town life with all the benefits of big city living.

Thirty-five law enforcement officials who lost their lives while working in service to their communities were honored at a ceremony Tuesday at the Rapides Parish Courthouse. In his address, Alexandria Mayor Jeffery W. Hall told the somber crowd of law enforcement representatives attending the 2019 Annual Law Enforcement Memorial that “Unlike many other careers, men and women who choose a life in law enforcement know and accept that they might one day be called upon to lay down their lives in the call of duty. Those we honor made that choice willingly, in fact they embraced it. That’s why their ultimate sacrifice means so much. These brave officers gave their lives to protect our safety. There is no truer definition of a hero.”

Officers from the Alexandria Police Department joined representatives of numerous other area law enforcement agencies Tuesday morning at the Rapides Parish Courthouse for the 2019 Annual Law Enforcement Memorial. Alexandria Police Chief Jerrod King presided over the somber tribute to fallen law enforcement officers. Agencies taking part in the ceremony include Glenmora Police Department, Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Marshal, Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police, Alexandria City Marshal, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office, Pineville City Marshal, Rapides Parish District Attorney, Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, Rapides Parish Constable Office, Vernon Parish Sheriff’s Office, Ball Police Department, Beauregard Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Alexandria Mayor Jeffery W. Hall delivered the keynote address, noting “Most of us never truly understand the value of public safety in our community unless they are in law enforcement, public service or a first responder. We do not appreciate the danger until the evening news announces that we have lost yet another officer while he or she was trying to protect us. But here is where we acknowledge the unanticipated and unwelcomed ‘End of Watch,’ the ultimate sacrifice. Today – right now – we must pledge with all our hearts to never forget, never take for granted and be grateful for their service and the service of all our law enforcement members. A grateful community is one that never forgets.”

Following the Mayor’s remarks was the laying of a memorial wreath, a roll call of 35 fallen law enforcement officers and a 21-gun salute.

Workers help move a new, $2 million electrical transformer to the City of Alexandria Utility System substation on Twin Bridges Road Sunday. The 350,000 pound transformer was carefully moved on a special 96-wheel adjustable height flatbed trailer as workers lifted utility lines out of the way so the unit could be moved along the road. The transformer serves as one of two interconnects between the City of Alexandria's transmission system and the larger regional transmission grid. It is expected to be placed in service in the first quarter of 2020.
