GO Bond Public Safety Project Set to Begin

PUBLIC SAFETY PROJECT

Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Council recently approved an $8 million construction contract for phase two of the city’s Public Safety Training Facility.

The facility is located west of Sugar Land Regional Airport on city-owned land that was previously part of the Central Prison Unit.

The expanded facility will accommodate simulation training involving close-quarters, non-lethal, force-on-force practice in a short-range environment. An apparatus and shoot building will include six bays for department vehicles, some of which are currently stored in covered storage areas, and an indoor shooting range for the police department. The enclosed space will allow for consolidated storage of various pieces of equipment that are stored throughout the city at various fire stations and other city facilities. This space will also allow for advanced indoor training regardless of weather conditions.

The new building will accommodate incident command simulation training, EMS training, smoke diver and “saving your own” safety programs and a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus confidence course. The facilities will also include a driving pad to enable various skills training with motorcycles, ambulances, fire engines and public works vehicles. 

Other phase-two improvements will include outdoor classrooms, restrooms, site drainage, a water line loop, electricity service and a septic system.

Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of year 2024.
