ADG, in association with a local architectural firm, was selected for the programming update, master planning and design of the new Georgetown Public Safety Operations and Training Complex. An additional Tactical Training Facility, including a flexible training area with re-configurable walls for use with simulations or other training exercises, was also designed within the new public safety complex.
Designed to withstand estimated F3 tornado forces, the facility will be able to maintain continuity of operations (COOP) and accommodate state of the art technologies throughout the foreseeable future. In addition to administration offices and training classrooms, the new facility houses several specialized areas including a Communications Center, Evidence Processing and Storage, Criminal Investigation and Interview Areas, Forensics Lab, Outdoor Firing Range and Obstacle Training Course.
A City EOC (Emergency Operations Center) is also included, which will be utilized for shared departmental conferencing and training during non-activation periods. A 125 foot high
communications tower is included with an on-site Central Energy Plant, and all facilities can be self-sustaining for up to 24 hours.
