(This amendment divides the existing Area 40 for the Virginia State Police into two areas. Currently, Area 40 serves the Cities of Salem and Roanoke and the Counties of Craig, Floyd, Montgomery, and Roanoke. The amendment would divide this current Virginia State Police area into two areas. Area 40 would continue to serve the Counties of Craig and Roanoke. A new Area 49 would serve the Counties of Floyd and Montgomery. Virginia Tech's Police Department has offered a location on campus that would suffice as a new Area Office. The only costs to be incurred would be a VITA hook-up as well as monies to create two staff positions -- a First Sergeant and a Senior Secretary. This request would allow an even split between Area 40's two currently large metropolitan areas and equal coverage for public safety.)
