Nassau County Police Department Foundation has selected interiors and master planning firm Spector Group and Tactical Design North to create the design for the upcoming Nassau County Center for Training and Intelligence in Garden City, N.Y. The planned state-of-the-art facility will serve as a training center for the Nassau County Police personnel from 19 village and city departments located throughout the county, as well as state and federal law enforcement agencies.

Spector Group has delivered the first design sketches, envisioning a modern and flexible property to replace the police department’s current location, a leased elementary school in Massapequa Park. The building will be a mix of academic-styled and training-fit space, with oversized doors to facilitate access throughout the entire building. 

State-of-the-art features

  • Academic and fitness areas
  • Auditorium and lecture hall facilities
  • An intelligence bureau
  • Emergency vehicle operations course
  • Indoor/outdoor tactical training “village” that allows for simulation and scenario-based training

This forward-thinking facility brings together top-tier design and functionality to create a collaborative and educational environment…The Nassau County Police are leading the way for law enforcement by understanding the need for a modern, fully-functional facility that will provide a thorough educational experience in both an academic and experiential environment,” Spector Group Principal Marc Spector said in a prepared statement. 

The 150,000-square-foot facility will be located on the grounds of the Nassau Community College and will provide the New York City Police Department with easy access throughout the entire Nassau County area.

Other projects Spector Group is working on in the New York area include a reimagining 270 Madison Ave., in Manhattan, for private equity firm ABS Partners Real Estate.
