A meeting was held to discuss the moving of the CPD gun rang that they use to train their officers in Evendale. People in the community say it has to go. The rang has been there for over 70 years.
The gun range is used around 300 days per year and provides nearly 50,000 hours of training for officers annually. It’s also used for police canine training. Still, residents say gunshots are heard throughout the community six-days-a-week, seven hours-a-day near Lincoln Heights and Evendale, causing stress for them and their children and reducing their quality of life. Public commenters Tuesday said much the same, describing the range as a nuisance.
