WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A new 70,000-square-foot space is now part of Pitt Community College’s campus.
Although classes started in the building back in October, the law enforcement training center officially opened Tuesday afternoon after a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The facility includes classrooms and training areas.
PCC trains thousands of public safety officers every year, and the new building is meant to help that process.
“It allows us to tailor the training specifically to our law enforcement professionals and what they need to do their job in the community,” said Thomas Forrest, law enforcement training director.
The new facility was made possible by a $19 million bond.
Pitt County citizens voted in favor of the bond in 2013.
