The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department selected The Korte Company to design and construct the Nevada Joint Training Center, a cooperative world-class training campus for Nevada’s first responders. The multiphase Design-Build project includes two separate facilities that measure 164,000 total square feet.
The state-of-the-art Reality Based training center comes as a response to provide essential, life-saving training to local, state, and national law enforcement officers and first responders. Additionally, it will help provide a new level of safety to the general public.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Sheriff Joe Lombardo stated, “The ultimate goal is to make our community safer and our police officers safer, and give them the education and training and equipment to be successful.”
The Design-Build facility consists of two adjacent buildings; the first building contains over 50,000 square feet of the most modern and dedicated training resources found in the country including mat rooms, classrooms, simulators, and the offices and other administrative space for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department management of the facility.
The second building measures 76,500 square feet and integrates an indoor, climate and environmentally controlled tactical training village including casino simulations and other incidents to enable first responders to train realistically for a variety of events ranging from personal and citizen defense to high profile scenarios and in particular active shooter situations.
The indoor tactical training village allows units to work together to provide a comprehensive response to active shooter events through the use of simulated towns in order to respond in a coordinated manner saving lives and protecting officers.
