New tactical training facility at Police Academy

Ground was broken yesterday at a new tactical training facility at the Philadelphia Police Academy at 8501 State Rd. in Upper Holmesburg.

The new building will combine the department's SWAT, bomb squad and K-9 units and will be used by other nearby law enforcement departments.

Aside from training for the city's police officers, the training academy is also home to the Police Explorer Cadet Program, which is designed to people ages 14 to 20 who are interested in pursuing careers in law enforcement.
