Tully was a 29-year veteran with the Baton Rouge Police Department. He became Alexandria's chief last August.
The mayor's news release Friday said Tully "exemplified excellence during the selection process."
Tully does not have a phone listed in the Alexandria area and could not be reached Saturday for comment.
