Just in time for the new school year, the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office has established a sub-station on the West Liberty University campus.
The new space is located along Faculty Drive in the Annex building.
The substation is a fully operational office, where officers can perform interviews and complete arrests.
It also offers office space with Wi-Fi for deputies needing to complete paperwork and documents.
“This is something we’ve been wanting to do since I came into office. We finally got it done and we wanted to have it going before the start of the school year,” said Sheriff Tom Howard, Ohio County.
“This now gives us more of a presence in the northern part of the county. It will also give parents more of a piece of mind. Plus, students will see a stronger presence of the Sheriff’s Department on campus, working well with the campus police, since they have a full working police department here.”
Move in weekend for students is fast approaching and takes place August 24-26.
Classes start at the Highlands Center on August 25 and on the main campus on August 27.
