Volk Field opens training facility

CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. (AP) -- Law enforcement officers have a new training facility at Volk Field Air National Guard Base in southcentral Wisconsin to practice for their most dangerous missions.

  The state-of-the-art High Risk Entry Training Facility is a collaboration between the Wisconsin and Pennsylvania National Guards.

  The facility provides low cost training in realistic scenarios.

  Pennsylvania Lt. Col. Bob Hepner says the building is unique because it replicates the sights, smells and sounds from dangerous environments law enforcement officers may encounter.

  Law enforcement agencies can have their drills videotaped so they can analyze them later.
