City Council Recognizes Alexandria Police 150th Anniversary

Alexandria’s finest were recognized by the City Council last week. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Alexandria Police Department, and Mayor Justin Wilson honored the department with a city proclamation in council chambers.

“The most important role of local government is to protect public safety, and we are fortunate that the residents of the city are able to rely 24/7 on the best police department on the planet, the Alexandria Police Department,” Wilson said. “Every day you confront danger so our residents do not have to. You keep our residents safe, and you do it with a smile and incredible customer service.”

Police Chief Michael L. Brown thanked the city for the recognition and said there will be a number of events this year honoring the department, including an open house of police headquarters and a gala. The actual anniversary of the department falls on July 15.

“It’s a long and established legacy we have here,” Brown said. “We really do appreciate the fact that you’re taking the time to recognize the contributions of men and women who have come before us, and, of course, the men and women who serve this community right now.”

APD officers are allowed to wear commemorative badges throughout the year in recognition of the anniversary.
