A memorial was held today for K9 Jerry, who passed away on April 10. Chief King gave an address in which he stressed how important the K9 program is to our department, and that these K9s are part of our family.

Sergeant Debbie Blackwood, K9 Supervisor and a K9 handler for many years, spoke next about K9 Jerry's hard work in service to Alexandria, and also spoke about the many K9s who have served our city in the past.

K9 Jerry's handler, Officer Daren Luneau, spoke last about the bond that he had with Jerry, and the bond all handlers have with their K9s. He also spoke about what an eager, dedicated K9 Jerry was. The service closed with a final radio call from Dispatch.

K9 Jerry would have been seven years old today. Rest in Peace, Jerry. We have the watch from here.

Thanks to a kind observer, we got some great news about one of our officers today. Corporal Le was on patrol and saw a car driving on a flat tire. He alerted them and they stopped, and Corporal Le changed the tire for them.

Chief King presented Corporal Le with a Chief’s Challenge Coin For Excellence as a token of appreciation for going above and beyond. Le’s supervisor, Sergeant Painter, and commander, Lieutenant Mouliere, were present and and said what a hard-working and professional officer he is.

Excellent work, Corporal Le! Keep up the great work!

The work they're doing now should be over soon, but this is good practice for when the state begins construction of the roundabout at Jackson and Horseshoe. Please share this with your friends and remind them to stop at stop signs and follow the speed limit, especially in neighborhoods.

See those stop signs at Carl and Camille Streets in Alexandria? You have to stop at them. According to the Alexandria Police Department, many people aren't during a detour for construction of a roundabout...as many as 15 in an hour.

Last Thursday, the Alexandria Police Department concluded its Citizen's Police Academy with 18 graduates. This is the second Citizen's Academy since the program was brought back by Chief Jerrod King last year. We plan to continue with two classes per year, with the next scheduled for fall, 2019.

The Academy met once a week for 7 weeks at the Public Safety Complex, and consisted of an overview of the Alexandria Police Department, patrol functions, a tour of the department, internal affairs, family violence, DWI enforcement procedures, explanation of the use of deadly force, pursuit policies, crime prevention, personal safety and crime scene investigation techniques.

"This training is invaluable for residents of our community to get a comprehensive look at the inner workings of their police department," said Chief King. "I've said repeatedly that we are committed to community policing, and this Academy is a big part of making the people of our city part of the law enforcement team. We had a great response and we hope that we have even more in our next Citizen's Academy this fall."

For more information about Citizen's Academy, you can go to our website at: http://alexandrialapolice.org/content/2019-spring-citizen-police-academy.

This is Officer Baker. Today, we spotted him on a private-lot car accident. This type of call usually involves a form that drivers fill out and turn in to us later, and usually only takes a couple minutes. Today, however, Ofc. Baker saw that these folks weren’t familiar with the paperwork or the system and stayed there a long time to help make sure they got all the information they needed.

We value those who do their job to the highest standard it can be done, and we want to recognize Ofc. Baker for his dedication. We’re also looking for more men and women who want to serve their community and are dedicated to providing exemplary law enforcement services. If you’re that kind of person, check out our employment page at http://alexandrialapolice.org/content/employment.
