NYPD explains more upgrades at Rodman’s Neck
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.
