The Henrico Victim/Witness Assistance Program (15 mins)

When a serious crime occurs in Henrico, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office and Police work together to prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law.

Advocates are committed 24-hours-a-day to advise in legal matters, provide protection and offer counseling to help victims and witnesses get through this difficult time.

Elizabeth Jane Holladay: Trailblazer of Public Education (15 mins)

Henrico County Public Schools is widely recognized as one of the nation’s premier school systems, but this modern model of excellence comes from humble beginnings. One cornerstone was laid in the late 19th century, in the parlor of a home on Mountain Road, where a dedicated teacher began sharing her love of learning with a handful of children from the nearby farms. By the time she was done, Elizabeth Jane Holladay had helped build a foundation for public education in Henrico. Students today continue to learn under her watchful eye — at Holladay Elementary School in central Henrico, just a couple miles from her original classroom. Join HCTV as we learn about Miss Lizzie, her life and her dedication to education.

Dr. Richard Archibald Patterson: A Self-Made Man (26 mins)

Henrico residents probably recognize the name Patterson as one of the roads they often drive. The road’s namesake, however, is likely an afterthought. Dr. Richard Archibald Patterson was a giant of his time — a tobacco pioneer who helped forge his community’s recovery from the Civil War; a public servant and philanthropist; a doctor and Civil War surgeon; and a proud Henrico resident who envisioned big things for his community. Join HCTV as we uncover the story of the man, his era and the community he served.

Crystal Clear: Henrico County Water Reclamation Facility (21 mins)

Each time we do a load of laundry, take a shower, flush the toilet or wash our hands, we produce wastewater that seems to magically disappear through unseen pipes. In fact, in Henrico County, we produce more than 42 million gallons of wastewater every day. This wastewater must be cleaned, treated and prepared before reentering our environment through the James River. Join HCTV as we tour the high tech (if sometimes smelly) Water Reclamation Facility where this fascinating process takes place. From the natural use of nutrient eating organisms to the multi-step treatment process, Henrico’s Water Reclamation Facility makes sure the water returned to the James is crystal clear.
