James City County recently broke ground on the new Police headquarters building located on Opportunity Way near Thomas Nelson Community College. Projected to open in June 2011, the 47,000-square-foot building will allow the Police department to oversee all divisions and functions from a central site in the County. The facility will support the County's commitment to the environment with the use of a geo-thermal well system and energy efficient windows, doors and lighting. The new headquarters will replace the current Law Enforcement Center that was built in 1980. Representatives from David Nice Builders, Rancorn Wildman Architects and the public safety architectural consultants of McLaren, Wilson & Lawrie joined County Board members and staff in the groundbreaking.
