St. Paul Police Training Center

With the immediacy surrounding police training, the St. Paul Port Authority and the City of St. Paul came together to provide a new Public Safety Training Facility. This 40,000 sf facility aspires to create a positive identity for the police and connect the culture of the nearby St. Paul Police headquarters with a state-of-the-art training facility. The training facility includes office space for training division staff, locker rooms for staff and cadets, two lecture classrooms, a reconfigurable scenario-training suite with moveable walls, and a 12-lane firing range used for training and certification. The training facility serves as the base for an on-going, in-service training for St. Paul officers; with 17-week long police sessions and a professional development institute for continuing education seminars, the facility has the capacity for St. Paul police as well as outside law enforcement agencies to train and take classes.
