PEORIA — A Peoria Police substation will be coming to Northwoods Mall this month.

The station, located on the mall's upper level near Sears, was given free to the department by the owners of Northwoods.

According to a department news release Wednesday, the station should open May 24.

Further details, including why the department chose to put the station in the mall and what its hours were, will be released when the station opens, said Peoria Police spokeswoman Amy Dotson.
