A December 13, 2004 ribbon cutting ceremony officially opened the first phase of the new Columbus Police Academy and Regional Training Center.  Aside from traditional classrooms and lecture halls, the new 166,288 square foot main facility houses scenario rooms for experiential based training; a forensics classroom for evidence collection, preservation and processing; physical conditioning center; gymnasium; aquatic center; defensive tactics training rooms; and an auditorium that seats over 500 people.  Work on future phases of the training complex will continue.  The design phase for “Tac Town” and the driving components of the overall project has been completed and awaits funding for construction.  The new training complex is truly a state-of-the-art facility.
