Municipal Shooting Facilities

Hunter Rieseberg

Our community is interested in developing a municipally owned shooting range for use by area police departments, clubs, etc.

I am concerned about the ongoing issues relating to supervision, liability, establishing a revenue stream, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with municipal shooting ranges and/or can you share any related documents, e.g. membership and liability documents and/or by-laws, operating policies, etc.?

Many thanks!

Hunter

Hunter,

I researched your question and found an ICMA blog post that might help you in your research. "Cost Reduction Ideas For Police and Fire Training" explores ideas like partnerships and municipally owned facilities to lower public safety costs.

Hopefully, this helps,

Hunter,

I reached out to experts from the Center for Public Safety Management (CPSM) and they recommend not taking on this initiative. They believe that the level of liability and expense would outweigh the benefits of a municipally owned facility. If you have any additional questions you can find the contact information for CPSM in the link below.
