Law Enforcement Training

Outside agencies are welcome to reserve a portion or all of our training facility for use. The 5800 square foot facility can support classroom type instruction in our conference room, computer lab, or large classroom. Outside, participants can engage in shooting instruction and practice on a 24 lane pistol range with night firing capabilities, a 200 yard/10 lane rifle range, or a multi-use shotgun range. The training center is located at 543 McDow Road in Columbiana, Alabama. To reserve the center, please call 205-669-8884.
