********** Law Enforcement Training **********

RCWA has annual contracts with some of the local law enforcement groups to provide range facilities for staff training.  They currently have contracts with Rowan County Sheriffs Department and the Cleveland Police Department.

Due to special requirements for law enforcement training,  Range 5 and the Rifle Range 1 will be closed to RCWA members at specific times when law enforcement training is occurring.  Please stay away from these range facilities when they are in use by law enforcement.
The detailed law enforcement training schedules will be posted on this web site as they are made available to RCWA.   General law enforcement range use guidelines are posted on Rifle Range 1 and on Range 5.  RCWA members are expected to observe these guidelines when law enforcement personnel are present for training exercises.
