People can’t block alleys, and no signage to that effect is required. See http://dpw.dc.gov/DC/DPW/Publication%20Files/1210_Parking_Codes.pdf .
If it’s your own private property, I doubt the city will install “No Parking” signs. If it’s a public alley, they probably won’t do it either (on the grounds that the law says no signage is necessary).
I think you can get “No Parking” signs at Home Depot. (Not sure — I know they have a lot of other signage there, but I don’t remember specifically as far as “No Parking.”) It might be worthwhile to get people to stop parking in the alley, even if no such signage ought to be necessary.
