This project has been ongoing since 2006, when former Sheriff Rocky Nelson started the upgrades at the training facility, Sheriff Patton noted.

“I’m committed to preparing our deputies for whatever challenges they may face on the street and quality training is just one part of that commitment,” he said in a release.

Over the past few years, the sheriff’s office has completed upgrades to the range itself by expanding it from one range to three ranges. Improved drainage and a new impound lot also were installed.
