The Auburn Police Department is raising funds to build a new multi-use training facility and renovate its existing outdoor firearms training area.
With more than 15 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies routinely using it, the APD has outgrown its current facility. Built in 1985, the space is too small to accommodate how law enforcement trains today. The APD regularly trains with its partner agencies to train and establish protocol for how they should jointly respond to an emergency situation. In an actual incident, this allows them to be more efficient and effective in their response times. The IMAGE Drug Task Force is a great example of the collaboration experienced today. This task force, led by the APD, involves law enforcement from four counties.
The APD also plans to use the new facility to host community classes, such as RAD, CPR, first aid and fire arm safety.
