Training Facility siteCrews are almost done clearing the area where the future Haynes/Lacewell Police and Fire Training Facility will be built. Utility work is expected to begin by the end of December, and construction on the building will begin in early 2019.

The 31,000 square-foot building, named in honor of Sgt. Edward Haynes of the WPD and Capt. Eric Lacewell of the WFD, will be located on a portion of the city’s 46-acre tract in the Hurst Street/Princess Place Drive area near Maides Park. The facility will provide a greater police presence in this area with a police substation and a secure, indoor firing range that is not only environmentally-friendly, but is also not expected to have any noise impact to nearby neighborhoods. 

Construction of the $9.1 million facility is expected to be complete by the end of 2019.
