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.”
