The Criminal Justice Training Center, working with the IUP Research Institute, has been awarded an $85,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The grant will be utilized to purchase a state-of-the-art Firearms Training System.

The Firearms Training System portrays real life situation where the police cadet must determine whether to use deadly force in “Shoot Don’t Shoot” scenarios.

This system is used during the 19-week Police Academy training for new recruits and is also utilized by the IUP Criminology Department. It will be made available to law enforcement agencies throughout Western Pennsylvania.
