Officials to consider proposals for central police precinct

UPDATE: FEB. 11, 8 P.M. – Henrico County last month received an unsolicited proposal from a private company that is offering to construct a Central Henrico police precinct on Villa Park Drive (near Parham Road and Route 1) and then lease or sell the facility and 4.2-acre site to the county.

The Division of Police has sought such a permanent facility in the central part of Henrico for six years. Its current temporary precinct in the region opened last year inside the Virginia Center Commons mall and is operating there on a two-year lease.

The county's Board of Supervisors tonight unanimously accepted the proposal and now will accept other proposals for a police precinct from interested companies during the next 45 days. Then, a committee of county officials will consider all proposals and make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors, which could accept one or reject them all. > Read more.
