Met opens £55m state-of-the-art training centre

The
Metropolitan Police has opened a new £55m training centre to help train
officers to deal with hooliganism, gun crime and the fight against terrorism.

The
new complex, based in Kent, leads the world in facilities, including a mock-up
tube station, a train with life-size carriages, a section of an aircraft and a
mock stadium.

It
also has Britain’s largest public order training base with road simulations,
including crossroads, houses and cul-de-sacs.

The
project took five years to complete and is one of the biggest private-public
partnership deals undertaken by the police.
