Police cadets will now have a new place to call home in the new river valley.
Officers from across the region cut the ribbon this afternoon at the New River Valley Criminal Justice Training Academy
The $2.8 million facility was paid for using federal stimulus dollars.
Cadets had been training at Riverlawn Elementary in Pulaski County after tornadoes ruined their old temporary facility in Draper.
Marty Alford, Executive Director of the facility, says it is all about the future officers.
“This building is just but a part of a process to ensure that future generations of law enforcement officers that come through these doors are going to have something they can be proud of,” said Alford.
The current class of cadets is set to be the first to graduate from the new facility next Friday.
