Central District Police Station:
The Central District Police Station will be a new 50,000 square foot facility located on Davis Ford Road near the Prince William County Parkway. The $28.6 million facility will provide police services to the mid-County area, primarily the Dale City, Lake Ridge and Davis Ford Road corridor. This will be the third police station in Prince William County and will free up space and resources at the Eastern District Station located in Woodbridge at Route 1 and Cardinal Drive, which is currently overloaded serving the eastern and middle parts of the County.
Public Safety Staffing:
In addition to the Central District Station, Prince William County has also budgeted for 25 newly sworn officers and three civilian positions in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget. Moving forward, 125 total sworn positions and 15 civilian staff will be added if the current staffing plan is funded over the next five years. This plan will help bring our police staffing levels in line with our adopted policy of 2 police officers per 1,000 residents. Prince William County has also budgeted for 15 new positions in the Department of Fire & Rescue in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget. Moving forward, a total of 90 staff positions will be added over five years.
