With 36 years in law enforcement, Detective Sergeant Gary Frodge of the Alexandria Police Department is retiring at the end of this month. At the November 7 meeting of Alexandria City Council, Police Chief Lucas Cooper presented Frodge with a plaque and expressed his thanks and warm wishes for the future.

This moment "is bittersweet," said Cooper. "I’ve been working with Gary since I started. He has served in a lot of capacities including SWAT Team...He serves as a detective currently, a supervisor and sometimes the cleaning lady and maintenance guy — whatever has to be done, he does it. He has done a lot for us."

The chief went on to say it was a pleasure to bring him before council and the community to honor him with the plaque and a sincere thank you from the department, the city and the community.

Said Frodge, "Anyone I’ve ever talked to about working here for the city, I tell them I’ve been here for 20 plus years, and this is one of the best cities I’ve ever worked for... I’ve had several injuries over my career, and the city has been wonderful. I am very appreciative of the support I’ve received from the city."
