Golden West College Criminal Justice Training Center
With the opening of the new Criminal Justice Training Center at Golden West College, municipal, county, and state law enforcement agencies in California now have a modern training center to better prepare their professionals for the physical and mental demands placed on officers every day. DLR Group’s design for this specialized facility provides enhanced academic and practical training experiences, and replaces a nearly 50-year-old building that could no longer meet the training needs for today and tomorrow’s peace officers.

The new center will serve up to 3,000 students per year, including recruits and current law enforcement personnel. The 39,000 SF, two-story facility features seven classrooms, locker rooms, training rooms, simulation labs, fitness lab, ready room, mat room, armory, scenario labs, and an administration suite and multi-purpose room.
