The new state-of-the-art David S. Mack Center for Training and Intelligence serves as a regional training center for all Nassau County Police personnel, comprising nineteen village and city departments located throughout the county, as well as a wide array of state and federal law enforcement agencies from across the country.
Located on the grounds of Nassau Community College, the state-of-the-art center will feature a new police training academy for cadets and in-service officers, academic and fitness areas, auditorium and lecture hall facilities, an intelligence bureau, emergency vehicle operations course (EVOC) and an indoor/outdoor tactical training “village” that allows for simulation and scenario-based training. Spectorgroup executed a design centered on creating a modern and high-tech environment for training that remains flexible to seamlessly cater to the versatile needs of the County. The creative strikes a balance between hands-on-training structures and academic-style classrooms. Throughout the building, over-sized doors allow for vehicular access and stage-setting in the tactical zones. All design element present a sophisticated, forward-thinking design that also incorporates training uses.
Highly visible from the Meadowbrook Parkway , the structure yields a strong and powerful message. The façade, featuring a combination of white panels and windows, presents and elegant sophistication evocative of an academic institution. Large slabs of pre-cast concrete featuring “NCPD” and the Nassau County Police Department shield, which will be lit up at night, designate this a constant beacon of law enforcement.
