New indoor firing range opens for Amsterdam cops

August 15, 2019 05:36 PM

Amsterdam police have a new place to train.

They cut the ribbon on a restored, indoor firing range on Thursday. It sits underneath the police department building.


This will allow officers to train 24 hours a day, and all through the winter months.

The project will also save taxpayers money, because officers will no longer have to travel to train at other locations.

The indoor firing range was originally built in 1972 and closed in the mid-1990s because the Health Department found officers were being exposed to unsafe levels of lead.
