THE BRONX - The city announced the construction of tactical simulation programs for the NYPD Tuesday, the latest new measure planned for the Rodman's Neck shooting range and training facility.

A mock village to practice active shooter response and several other staged urban situations will help police train for realistic scenarios, said Commissioner James O'Neill.

The city announced a $275 million revamp of the facility earlier this month, including a soundproofed shooting range that neighbors had sought for years.

The NYPD also showed off new bullet-resistant windows that can stop a bullet fired from point blank. The $10.4 million investment for them comes after detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were assassinated while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn in 2014.
