Clark Nexsen Public Safety joined representatives of Loudoun County Government and Branch Builds at a special luncheon in August to honor the new Loudoun County Indoor Firearms Training Facility, located outside of Leesburg, VA. Replacing an existing, obsolete outdoor facility, the new ranges represent the latest evolution in modern firearms training and will significantly improve training conditions and opportunities for the Sheriff’s Office. The 55,000 square foot center will feature both 50 and 100-yard fully tactical indoor walk-down ranges, classrooms, simulator spaces, storage space, and administrative support offices. A 6,000 square foot facility will also be included for specialized force-on-force training.
Since 1984, the sheriff’s office has used firearms training at a leased property in Chantilly, VA. Deficiencies within the existing facility posed increasing challenges to the training program.
“No more critical can a decision be than the use of force,” said Loudoun County Sheriff Mike Chapman. “That is why state-of-the-art training is essential for law enforcement officers to effectively and safely perform these functions — from one side of the spectrum to the other” Chapman added. The new facility is set to be completed in Spring 2020.
