Take a tour of the new Police Headquarters. Join Front Royal Mayor Hollis Tharpe and Councilmen Gary Gillispie and Bill Sealock, along with Police Chief Kahle Magalis. The project is on track for completion December 2018. The Royal Examiner camera was there.

The $10.3 million project will result in a two-building, 21,000 square foot facility designed to accommodate town law enforcement needs as many as 40 years into the future.  FRPD is currently housed – for the most part – in 7,236 s.f. at the old Warren County Sheriff’s Office on Jackson Street behind the Warren County Courthouse.  However, the department which moved out of its old 4,032 s.f. headquarters in late 2013 has already outgrown that space.  The Criminal Investigations Division occupies space in the old Comcast/Finance Department building across the street from the old Town Hall.

The project is being financed through a 20-year bond issue, hopefully with discounts provided by qualifications for the New Market Tax Credit Program.
