LSPD To Host New Training Facility Dedication And Open House May 2

The fruits of an overwhelmingly approved public safety bond initiative will be showcased from 1 to 3 p.m. on Friday, May 2 when the Lee’s Summit Police Department will host an open house event to officially dedicate its new training facility.

Voters in November of 2010 passed a $10 million "No-Tax Increase" general obligation bond initiative for public safety improvements, including a plan to remodel and expand the department’s detention facility.

A portion of the funding has been used for an $8 million construction project that has expanded and renovated the detention area, created an indoor firing range, added training space, and completed a double-bay garage for the bomb unit response team and armored vehicles. The 110-seat training and community use room is equipped with state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment and technology.

The public is invited to come to the open house and tour the new facility located at 10 NE Tudor Road.

"We want to show the public how the bond issue money was spent and our plans for having better trained police officers," said Sgt. Christopher Depue, public information unit supervisor for the Lee’s Summit MO Police Department.

The police department wishes to thank the following individuals and groups for their hard work and vision during the project: Mayor Randall L. Rhoads; councilmembers Rob Binney, Ed Cockrell, Allan S. Gray II, Kathy Hofmann, Derek Holland, Bob Johnson, Dave Mosby and Brian Whitley; former mayor Karen Rose Messerli; former councilmembers Jim Hallam, Joe Spallo and Nick Swearngin; the Lee’s Summit City Management Team; members of the Public Safety Advisory Board; members of the LS 360° Steering Committee; and Friends of Lee’s Summit, Treasurer Gene Gamber and Chairwoman Paula Dirks.
