The Homeland Security Training Center (HTC) helps expand first responder instructor training.
The entrance to the facility is warm and inviting.
There are also several multi-purpose classrooms and a call center training room for employees working at dispatch centers.
The Homeland Security Training Center (HTC) is a 39,714 square-foot facility that includes a state-of-the-art indoor firing range and a call center training lab. This facility is Phase II in the completion of the College’s Homeland Security Training Institute.
The firing range, which measures 100 feet by 50 yards, features 24 target positions, running man targets and a simulator to replicate a variety of scenarios for both proximity and tactical training. Squad cars can be driven into the range to teach police cadets how to properly and safely approach suspects and vehicles. This provides first responders a unique facility to continue their training.
Combined with the Robert J. Miller Security Education Center (HEC), the HTC completes COD's Homeland Security Training Institute (HSTI).
The $16.5 million center was funded by the 2010 capital bond referendum.
