The city of Perry has unveiled a new public-safety training facility for Central Georgia.
The new firing range is just the first stage.
"Chief Potter set us up a state-of-the-art system to use out here," says Lieutenant James Buck.
The center, which sits on almost 40 acres off of Toomer Road, is named after Chief Georgia Potter.
Potter says the project was just an idea four years ago. "What you see out there right now is just the beginning of what's going to be a large training area for both police and firemen," explains Potter.
The city of Perry already owned the land. The city paid for building materials with confiscated drug money and inmates built the facility, which has pistol, rifle and shotgun ranges controlled by a simulator system.
It also has a running track for conditioning. Inside, the track will be an obstacle course and rappelling tower.
