WCTC seeks indoor firearms facility

The Waukesha County Technical College’s District Board on Tuesday gave approval to explore off-campus locations for an indoor, tactical firearms facility to meet community and law enforcement needs and provide training for the College’s Police Academy program.

“We’re looking for a modern, indoor range suitable for law enforcement where we can do scenario-based training and tactical applications,” said Brian Dorow, WCTC’s associate dean of criminal justice.

The range will be staffed by WCTC instructors, Dorow said. When not in use by local law enforcement, the range will be open to the public on a membership basis.

WCTC will complete a Request for Proposals (RFP) to lease property with an existing structure, within close proximity to the College’s Pewaukee campus to maintain continuity of training between the Morris Street Law Enforcement Training Center and the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC) track. Once a site has been determined, WCTC will hold public input sessions in that area to solicit feedback from the community. In addition, the project will require a series of approvals from the WCTC District Board, Wisconsin Technical College System Board and the Village of Pewaukee, and may be subject to an environmental study.

The estimated cost for the firearms facility is approximately $1.4 million. The College hopes to begin construction in June 2013 and open the range in October 2013.
