Training Center Strategic Planning

“Planning a Safe, Secure and Consistent place to train?”

A well-developed business plan is absolutely essential to chart the strategic course for a public safety training center project. Future project funding opportunities and operational considerations demand that vital components of a business plan be developed.

We are the national authority on the development of Strategic Business Plans for Public Safety Training Centers for law enforcement and the fire service. We’ve been helping public safety agencies for over 20+ years. If you are responsible for facility Planning, Operating, Expanding, or Partnering with others you have come to the right place.

Our Areas of Authority; Making the case:

Planning a SAFE

  • Why build it?
  • What do we need?
  • How can we justify it?
  • What will it cost?
  • What are the design, operational and maintenance of aspects of training props:
    • Operation costs
    • Staff demands
    • Maintenance costs
  • Co-location challenges involving the police and fire departments.
  • Vendor selection with respect to both design and specialized training equipment.
  • Training center construction priorities based on needs and construction efficiency.
  • Daily training center operations or “House” rules of a co-located facility.
  • Revenue opportunities helping to off-set annual operations costs.
  • Regional relationships with other agencies.

Our experience in this extremely specialized area is unmatched and our success rate is unparalleled. How do we do it? How do we successfully execute a project of this magnitude? Simply stated, we approach it as a new business; a business for which there will be strategic planning, political ramifications, environmental concerns, funding and grant acquisition strategies, operational planning, maintenance and cost projections for the future, and so on. We can help guide you through the often overwhelming process and provide you with the critical component for success — an in-depth, comprehensive strategic/business plan. This strategic/business plan is the foundation for the entire project and is crucial in the earliest stages — long before design or construction begins.

The Business Plan Process© method that we employ is unique. It is a product of research and years of successful projects. We have developed Strategic Business Plans for small departments as well as large multi-municipal government agencies, community colleges and universities. The process is a collection of activity tasks that when completed comprises a comprehensive Strategic Business Plan. The Business Plan Process© is all encompassing and answers every question that users, administrators and officials are likely to have. The following graphic lists each step in the Business Plan Process©.
