Located on the grounds of Nassau Community College and overlooking the Meadowbrook Parkway, 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. Spector Group, in association with Tactical Design North, was contracted by the Nassau County Police Department Foundation to develop a forward-thinking design. The project team put forth 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 police force.

Spector Group’s design strikes a balance between hands-on-training structures and academic-style classrooms. The classrooms feature flexible design elements that allow for the space to be easily divided into smaller classrooms. Throughout the building, over-sized doors allow for vehicular access and stage-setting in the tactical zones. All design elements were carefully thought out to present a sophisticated, forward-thinking design that also incorporates training uses.

Highly visible from the Meadowbrook Parkway, it was imperative that the structure yield 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.
