WICHITA, Kansas – The local home of the Kansas Highway Patrol will soon be in new digs.

Tuesday morning Governor Sam Brownback and several other state and law enforcement officials held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new headquarters in Kechi.

KFDI reports the new headquarters will replace the current location in Wichita. It is also the future home of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.

The new building is being paid by asset forfeiture funds.

Troop F works in 13 south-central Kansas counties including Barton, Stafford, Pratt, Barber, Rice, Reno, Kingman, Harper, Harvey, Sumner, Butler, Cowley, and Sedgwick with the Wichita metropolitan area.
