The town of Gilbert held a groundbreaking ceremony for its Public Safety Training Facility on May 20.
The town will build the facility with funds mostly from a bond sale that voters approved in November.
The training facility
will consist of multiple tactical, prop and classroom structures; a shooting range; and a driver training track. It will be used to train police officers, firefighters and other first responders.
Construction at 6860 S. Power Road, Gilbert, will begin in June and is expected to last 24 months. www.gilbertaz.gov
