Dixon Police Department Opens New Public Safety Training Center

The Dixon Police Department recently opened a new public safety training center. The center includes a 25-yard pistol range with six individual lanes and a 50-yard rifle range. In addition, it features a classroom and an overhang structure where officers can maintain equipment and receive instruction. 

“The new training center will ensure the police officers of the Dixon Police Department continue to receive the highest quality training available. This is much more than a firearms training facility; it is used to teach and practice de-escalation, less-lethal interventions, and situational judgment,” said Police Chief Robert Thompson, “We believe training is the key to promoting a culture of continuous improvement and evolution of our staff.” 

The center, with a classroom and practical exercise facilities, will provide for the future training needs of not only Dixon, but the greater Solano area law enforcement community. “We're proud to be able to allow other allied agencies use of our facility for the greater good of promoting safety and training,” said Thompson.
