The City of Philadelphia’s new Police Training Center in Northeast Philadelphia has earned a LEED Silver (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Projects pursuing LEED certification earn points across several areas that address sustainability issues.
The 78,000 sq.ft. building at 2838 Woodhaven Road was an $18 million renovation completed by the Department of Public Property. The state-of-the-art facility centralizes some of the police force’s key units, including the Training and Education Services Bureau, Advance Training Unit, and the Standards and Accountability Bureau.
