This premier training facility offers primary training opportunities for law enforcement, firefighting, and public works groups. Since its inception, the RTF has since had numerous renovations, expansions, and improvements to meet the needs of Facility users. As it grows, it continues to provide a wider array of class offerings and a location where a variety of police, fire, and public works training opportunities can occur in a campus setting. The RTF benefits SCALE members approximately $54,000 each year. Opened 2008.
