Photos: Alexandria Police Department and city leaders salute fallen officers

The Alexandria Police Department honored its fallen officers in an annual wreath laying ceremony on Monday, May 10.

“These individuals who we just recognized did make the ultimate sacrifice,” Alexandria Police Chief Michael Brown said at the city’s Fallen Officers Memorial outside APD headquarters. “In tough times they were there.”

Brown continued, “I will tell you that the men and women of this police department are incredibly dedicated to what they do as a profession that they’ve chosen. And I pray that none of them have their name added to this roll. They are here for this city. They are here for the residents, just like their predecessors.”

Mayor Justin Wilson, Vice Mayor Elizabeth Bennett-Parker, City Manager Mark Jinks witnessed the annual event, which occurs at the beginning of National Police Week.

“We have to remember those who have given that ultimate sacrifice,” Wilson said. “That’s something that’s a special commitment that we have to recognize.”
