Bank Makes Donation to Police Foundation

$6,500 raised for Fallen Officers Memorial.

Officials from John Marshall Bank gathered Jan. 30 to present a check for $6,500 to Alexandria Police Chief Earl Cook and Police Foundation Chairman Willem Polak to go towards the building of a Fallen Officers Memorial at APD headquarters.

“This is a worthy cause for our fallen heroes,” said John Marshall Bank Alexandria Regional Executive Ted Johnson. “It's something that should be completed and accomplished for the community.”

The funds were raised through a golf tournament held last fall at Old Hickory Country Club in Woodbridge.

“We are grateful to Ted and everyone at John Marshall Bank,” Polak said in accepting the check. “With the help and generosity of community businesses like John Marshall Bank, we are confident that we will see the completion of a long overdue memorial honoring our fallen officers.”
