A partnership between the City of Miami Police Department and the Miami-Dade County School Board, the College of Policing is a state-of-the-art police department training facility and magnet high school focused on forensic science and law. Designed to be used by local, regional and international law enforcement personnel, the new training facility features a separate entrance while being connected to the existing headquarters.

AECOM team designed a 14-position indoor firing range for static and dynamic training to facilitate realistic scenarios. Applying the latest technology and acoustic finish materials, the range utilizes an inclined dry-system bullet trap and accommodates pistol, rifle and shotgun rounds.

To support learning and best practices in law enforcement, the College of Policing integrates classrooms and a 200-seat auditorium with simultaneous translation capabilities for local, regional and international law enforcement personnel. This auditorium is available to the local neighborhoods for after-hours use, helping to build trust and civic pride within the community.
