The Glendale Regional Public Safety Training Center will serve multiple cities west of Phoenix, and has been phased to accommodate the growth and financial requirements of these participants. The municipalities will utilize this facility as the training facility for all their sworn police and fire staff in the next three decades. In addition to police and fire departments, other organizations such as Glendale Community College and utility companies will also use the facility for training. Phase I was fast-tracked in order to have the emergency services elements completed before the Fiesta and BCS Championship Bowls in 2007 and the Superbowl in 2008, which is located at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Additional Phase I programming includes administration and classroom spaces that meet current and near future needs of the various departments, driver training track, CPAT building, simulated fire station, police firing range, and training props. Phase II will include an auditorium, simulated police substation, swift water rescue, and SIMS village. Phase III includes remaining administration spaces, retail space, cafeteria, candidate housing, gymnasium, and a health center. This Project features sustainable building principles throughout the design of this $90 million, fast-tracked project.
