The Department will begin training its officers on July 24th 2007. The training will consist of a 10-hour day and will involve every officer including command staff personnel.

Members of the media will be allowed to film portions of the training being administered to the officers. A PIO will be at the entrance of the facility to direct media personnel to the parking area. Due to limited parking on the base an arrival time of 11:30 is suggested.
