Spector Group recently unveiled the design for the new Nassau County Center for Training and Intelligence for the Nassau County Police Department, which will sit on the grounds of Nassau Community College and overlook the Meadowbrook Parkway.

The overall design of the new facility is meant to create a modern and high-tech environment for training that will remain flexible to cater to the needs of the police force. The facility will have a balance of hands-on-training structures and academic classrooms. Each classroom will have the ability to be sectioned and split into smaller classrooms. Oversized doors are incorporated throughout the building to allow for vehicular access and stage setting in the tactical zones.

The exterior of the building incorporates a façade that features a combination of white panels and windows. Large slabs of pre-cast concrete form the Nassau County Police Department shield and the letters “NCPD.” The shield and letters are highly visible and will be lit up at night.

Among the center’s many training facilities are:

  • A new police training academy for cadets and in-service officers
  • Academic fitness areas
  • An auditorium and lecture hall facilities
  • An intelligence bureau
  • Emergency vehicle operations course (EVOC)
  • An indoor/outdoor tactical training “village” that allows for simulation and scenario-based training

“This design is versatile and all elements can be utilized for training, as well as for other purposes,” says Marc B. Spector AIA, Principal, Spector Group.

The Nassau County Center for Training and Intelligence will serve police personnel from all 19 village and city departments located throughout Nassau Country, as well as a wide array of state and federal law enforcement agencies.
