Training Academy

The 22,772 square-foot facility opened its doors in 1988 for the purpose of both internal training of our personnel and for "host" training opportunities on a wide variety of topics for personnel from other departments. The facility includes a full-size gymnasium with free-weights and a separate, enclosed area containing various types of workout equipment. The indoor seven-lane pistol range for training and qualification is complemented by a separately operated state-of-the-art "Prism" shooting simulator. A large training/meeting room can accommodate groups of up to fifty persons. For "break-out" sessions or multiple use, the room can be partitioned with a retractable wall. Additionally, the Academy has three state-of-the-art classrooms with theatre style elevated seating for up to thirty-two persons each. All classroom and meeting areas have multiple electronic audio/visual amenities and connections. For those attending from other agencies there are many fine eating establishments and a variety of lodging accommodations available.
