150 Years Of Alexandria Police Department

The 150th anniversary of the founding of the Alexandria Police Department was marked with an informal gathering on July 15 at police headquarters. Sgt. Biruk Dessalegn, a school resource supervisor said, “There are not a lot of agencies worldwide that are this old. It’s usually the larger agencies like New York or Philly that have been around this long so it is unique for a department of our size to be marking this milestone.”
