Police and Fire training facilityCrews are making progress on the future Haynes/Lacewell Police and Fire Training Facility. Construction on the $9.1 million facility is well underway and the project is on schedule. 

The 31,000 square-foot building, named in honor of Sgt. Edward Haynes of the WPD and Capt. Eric Lacewell of the WFD, is 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. The firing range can be seen in the top half of the photo to the right.

Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
