The substation, which is nearly complete, will provide increased visibility for Henrico Police and has reinforced a strong relationship between students and county law enforcement.
A Staff/Student Day will be held Saturday, Nov. 2, from noon to 3 p.m. at the new substation, 10101 Brook Road, Glen Allen, to give the public an opportunity to see the results of this partnership.
Driving is something that many people take for granted, even though every time we enter a vehicle, we’re faced with multiple distractions. But how often do most drivers stop to examine how their everyday habits – such as using a cell phone, eating, listening to music, or talking with passengers – could affect their driving capabilities, their safety and that of others on the roads?
Glen Allen High School staff, students and the PTSA have organized a safe driving movement to shed light on the dangers of distracted driving and make drivers think twice about their unsafe habits.
