Breaking ground on new Marion Police Station

MARION (KWWL) -

Officials in Marion broke ground on a new police station.

The current station was built 30 years ago.

Since then Marion's population has grown from 18,000 to more than 30,000.

Marion's police chief says the $12 million project will boost officer morale.

"It's always nice to have your updated equipment, have a nice building and we're all really proud," said Harry Daugherty, Marion Police Chief.

The station is expected to open next November.
