New Munitions Field Approved By City Council

Posted:

At Friday's City Council meeting, the council approved the building of an additional training facility for Lubbock police officers.

The council voted 6-0 for the building of a munitions field located at the police academy's rifle range on Highway 114.

Assistant Chief of Administration Roger Ellis says the munitions building will be used for training. "The munitions building is a facility that we want to use for training for SWAT team members and also we could use it for our veteran officers to do in service training with them and also recruits to train for force on force situations using a "simumition" round," said Ellis.

The cost of the munitions field is $368,000. Ellis says funding will come from the department's abandoned vehicle fund and Lubbock will benefit with better trained officers.
