HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Henrico County officials gathered Tuesday to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new police station on Airport Drive.

The Henrico County Police Division’s South Station, expected to open in early 2025, is being built at 640 North Airport Drive — previously the site of a cornfield — and will replace the Fair Oaks Station, which provides the base of operations for areas east of Creighton Road. The Fair Oaks station currently operates in a leased space.
