Rep. Titus Tours Eldorado Valley Regional Public Safety Training Facility

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Congresswoman Dina Titus (NV-01) toured the Eldorado Valley Regional Public Safety Training Facility (EVRPSTF).


EVRPSTF is a joint venture between Boulder City and the City of Henderson. Over 11 years ago, Boulder City donated 240 acres of land to construct a training facility where Boulder City Police Officers and other local, state, and federal law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical response personnel, and tactical teams in the LV Valley could train together. The City of Henderson originally set aside $1 million to supplement $1.45 million in federal grants and appropriations.


“Expanding the EVRPSTF will enable law enforcement to better serve our community,” said Rep. Titus. “I was proud to include the funding in the House appropriations bill to purchase additional equipment, enhance facility firing ranges, and teach officers de-escalation techniques. Thank you to the Henderson Police Department, Boulder City Police Department, and Henderson Government and Public Affairs staff for showing me the facility.”



The tour included the shoot house and shooting range, the emergency vehicle operator course (EVOC), and the classroom building. During the visit, Henderson Police conducted 40mm instructor training, and the Clark County Fire Department gave the EVOC tour and demonstration.


Rep. Titus submitted a Community Project Funding (CPF) request for the facility in the House FY23 appropriations bill, specifically requesting $1.08 million for the Henderson Police Department to expand the facility. If passed by Congress, the funding will be used to purchase equipment to assemble a “training village.” It will also go towards the purchase of additional training simulator and computer equipment and the enhancement of facility firing ranges. An expansion will also introduce officers to more realistic, scenario-based “real-world” encounters, including learning de-escalation techniques.  This was included in the Commerce, Justice, and Science (CJS) appropriations package which passed out of the House Appropriations Committee in June.
