LUBBOCK, Texas -

The newest police substation broke ground Friday morning at Erskine and North Frankford. 

This will be the third one in Lubbock, the other two are on the east and south sides of town. 

Councilman Jeff Griffith, City Councilmembers Steve Massingale and Latrelle Joy, and Police Chief Floyd Mitchell headlined the event. 

Chief Mitchell says the timing is important, as the substation will give direct access direct access to officers patrolling and working in the district.

"When you look at the timing of what is going on in America, we as police need to inject ourselves into what is going on in America and get to know our public. Houses are going to be right next door to me. This will be a very community oriented policing station," Chief Mitchell said. 

He added they'll get to work once the other two patrol stations are finished. These substations are intended to increase more familiarity and an opportunity for a stronger trust between citizens and officers.
