APD Asking for Public Help in Building New Training Facility

Posted by admin on November 20, 2013

The Auburn Police Department (APD) plans to improve its training facilities and has requested the public’s help in raising funds for the project.

The APD wants to build a new multi-use training facility and renovate its existing outdoor firearms training area.

“Our current facility is nearly 30 years old,” says Police Chief Martin McCoy. “With more than 15 local, state and federal law enforcement agencies routinely using it, we’ve outgrown the space. Even more, the building is outdated and doesn’t reflect the current training needs of these collective law enforcement agencies.”

The APD has launched a public campaign to help raise funds for the project. The current facility was built with community donations in 1985.

“As one of the few outdoor firearm facilities in northern Indiana, the APD training facility is an asset, not only to the Auburn police force, but to law enforcement in many neighboring communities and throughout the region,” Chief McCoy says. “The need for effective training is essential, particularly with the multitude of situations our officers face today.”

The APD is asking DeKalb County residents and businesses to support the project through the purchase of a sponsor tile that will be displayed inside the new facility.  Sponsor levels include:

  • 4”x 8” Sponsor Tile (3 lines and 14 characters per line maximum) for $125
  • 8”x 8” Sponsor Tile (6 lines and 14 characters per line maximum) for $250
  • 12 x 12” Sponsor Tile (9 lines and 21 characters per line maximum) $500

Contributions are tax-deductible, with all proceeds going toward the improvement of the training facility and grounds.
