Raleigh City Council approved the design and construction of Raleigh Police Department's Law Enforcement Training Center in August 2007. This center houses county and city law enforcement training. The Wake County facility was finished in April 2010. We are replacing the 12,600-square-foot John H. Baker Sr. Police Training Center, which opened in 1988.
