On September 24, 2012, the new Bradley A. Peterson Live Fire Shoothouse was dedicated at the National Training Center in Albuquerque, NM. This brand new, state-of-the-art facility will host DOE security personnel from throughout the country where they may practice tactical maneuvers in a realistic building environment.
The new facility is a key component in the Department's commitment to enhancing the capabilities of DOE protective forces. Mr. Bradley A.
