Description: Photograph of a newspaper clipping from the Arlington Citizen Journal dated November 8, 1973 telling about Arlington's first police substation located on Little School Road. Arlington Substation 1 shared the facility with Fire Station 7. Substation 1 was also referred to as Little Road Station. A police motorcycle, a detective car, and a community service van are parked in the front parking lot and fire vehicles are parked inside the fire station garages. When the building opened in 1971, a portion of the building was used by the Police Department for a training center, community services, polygraph examinations, and traffic/motorcycle offices. Later in 1973, the section used by the police was dedicated as its first police substation with desk officers on duty 24 hours.
