About Us

GPD Handgun and SWAT Fire Mass


The Glendale Regional Public Safety Training Center (GRPSTC), a $45 million, state-of-the-art public safety training facility located at 115th and Glendale Avenues, is a unique partnership between the cities of Avondale, Glendale, Peoria and Surprise and the Maricopa County Community College District. It is the first and only shared use public safety training center in the Valley and its varied, unique, features and training amenities will set the standard for future public safety facilities in Arizona for many years to come.


GRPSTC opened in April 2007. It includes a full range of facilities needed to train new firefighters and specialty training facilities to fine-tune the skills of veteran fire and police officers. The 70,000 square foot main building contains classrooms; a computer lab; a defensive tactics room; a physical fitness room; a health center; and candidate testing facilities which are used by personnel of partnering cities, MCCCD’s fire and police training program students, and area high school and college students.

The 56-acre training site includes a shooting range; driver training track; a 5-story burn/drill tower; a simulated fire station, a burn house, an underground confined space prop, residential and commercial ventilation props, Flashover Chamber; natural gas and propane props; railroad tanker car, tracks and a railroad crossing; and many other props that maximize public safety officers’ ability to respond to and mitigate almost any type of emergency or disaster. These valuable training assets are also available to non-partnering public safety agencies, private corporate training programs, and state and federal agencies for specialized training and educational programs.
