McLean District Station

The McLean District Station of the Fairfax County Police Department is commanded by Captain Paul Norton.

In 1984, Captain George E. Kranda took command of the station.[1]

From 2008 to 2012, the station was commanded by Captain Stephen J. Thompson.[2]

Thompson was succeeded by Captain Daniel Janickey, who left in January 2014 to become deputy chief of the Vienna Police Department.[3] Following Janickey's departure, Norton, who had served as assistant commander of the station since March 2012, became the station commander.[4][5]


The McLean substation was the second substation opened by the FCPD. It originally opened in 1963 in the former Old Dominion Medical Center, itself a converted residence at the corner of Dolley Madison Boulevard and Elm Street.[6][7]

In September 1970 the Marriott Corporation bought the property with the intention of building a restaurant, necessitating the move of the station.[7] The groundbreaking ceremony for the new McLean district station was held on June 4, 1971, and the station opened on November 26.[7]
