Donations Still Needed for APD Training Facility

Posted by admin on June 23, 2015

The Auburn Police Department (APD) has raised enough to start construction on its new training center at 1131 W. Auburn Drive.

“It’s an exciting time as we see our fundraising efforts from the last three years turn our vision for a first-class training facility into a reality,” says Police Chief Martin D. McCoy.

The future 6,000-square-foot facility—four times the size of the former facility—is next to the police shooting range and will feature a large training room, storage space and locker rooms.

While the majority of funds have been raised, McCoy and the APD are requesting the public’s help in putting the finishing touches on the facility.

“As officers in this community we’re called to be good stewards of it and all that’s entrusted to us,” McCoy says. “In order to use this facility to the fullest and open it up to other area agencies in the county, as well as to the public for firearms safety classes, we need some final funding to purchase furniture and complete extra drainage work.”

Buy a Brick

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. Brick tiles, inscribed with each donor’s name, will be displayed on the interior wall at the training 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. Mail forms with payment to Auburn Police Department, P.O. Box 505, Auburn, Indiana 46706.
