High Point Police Open Firearms Training Center
High Point is home to a refurbished firearms facility.
Nearly two million dollars has been spent on improvements for the 20-year-old facility. Now, officers from around the state can use the centrally located center for practice and training. Kenneth Shultz is a Major with the High Point Police Department. He says among other improvements, upgrades include a classroom and a moving target system to help with reaction time.
Kenneth Shultz: "We've built a repel tower, a shooting platform for high-angle shooting and a ballistics shoot house that allows officers to go in and do live training to simulate what they would encounter in a structure."
There will be a day and night portion of all training sessions. Typically, law enforcement officers receive training for at least four different weapons.
