The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office Inmate Work Detail helped to make Old Town look its most festive by decorating the King Street corridor with garland, wreaths and bows. On Thursday, Nov. 29, the IWD put seasonal greens on lamp posts for the Old Town Business and Professional Association. The IWD, carefully screened inmates under the direct supervision of deputy sheriffs, has been providing this service to OTBPA since 2009.
