Sound the sirens: Edinburg police training center breaking groundSound the sirens: Edinburg police training center breaking groundhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=122632016-02-24T06:00:00Z2016-02-24T15:00:00Z

​​​EDINBURG - The city is one step closer to breaking ground on the new police department’s training facility after city council members voted to award the million-dollar construction bid last week.

The proposed facility, which will be located at 1200 North Doolittle Rd., will be built by Candela Organization LLC in Edinburg for $1.02 million, according to the city meeting agenda.

Construction is expected to begin after March 3 and the contractor has 151 days to complete the project, Mayor Pro Tem Richard Molina said.

The nearly 10,000-sf building will house three different classrooms, an auditorium, a computer lab and other office and meeting spaces, Edinburg Police Chief David White said.

Edinburg will be the second of three police departments to build or expand its training facilities since 2014. 

McAllen police completed their project in November 2014, and Pharr recently finalized an agreement with South Texas College and the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District to build their own facility.
