Sheriff's deputies from Bedford County and Campbell County spent last week at New London Airport.
They weren't there to fly and although the airport also hosts drag racing, they weren't there to race.
"This is our annual drivers' training," said Sergeant David Marsh, of the Bedford County Sheriff's Office.
Marsh said that this is the third year they have conducted this training, and they always do it at New London Airport. The airport shuts down for a week and its paved runways/drag strip offer a safe place for law enforcement officers to do this training.
