I know years past there were concerns about the number of middle and high students who just "hung out" there after school who weren't there necessarily to do homework. I don't know if that's been true recently or if there is something going on specifically. You can always call the station and ask, but right now I can't remember if the library is Sully or Fair Oaks as I know the west side of the road is Sully district but the east side, Greenbriar, is Fair Oaks. Just thought, any chance it is the resource officer for Chantilly HS? They are uniformed police and he may be hanging around to keep an eye on some of his "friends".

I guess he could have been the truancy officer but he was there during school hours so all kids except homeschooled should have been in school. and 4 hours walking the stacks seems excessive.

Well I would hope he'd be wandering out to the parking lot once in a while looking for expired safety stickers.

Possible police substation? There used to be a substation in the shopping center where I did my grocery shopping. It had a huge sign and said that it wasn't manned normally and if you had an emergency to call 911. It was essentially there to give cops somewhere to go to do paperwork rather than sitting in their cars.

You know, that makes a lot of sense. Having police officers do paperwork in the library sounds like a win win idea to me.

Nah they do that at the metro park-and-rides.

It's a county building. Might be a good place to give a community resource officer a place to work.

Truant officer and School Resource Officer are two totally different positions. The truant/attendance officers are school employees, often retired police. School Resource Officers (SRO) are uniformed members of the police force assigned to middle and high schools in the county. I know the SROs are familiar with the library given it is so near the high school and middle school.
