A new specialist training facility for federal police is set to be built at the organisation's Majura complex.
Tender documents have revealed the AFP is looking to build a new shooting range along with a multi-storey building designed to be used for simulations for activities such as police raids.
The new buildings are set to be built at the Majura complex owned by the federal police just off the Majura Parkway, where the AFP's forensics lab and dog training facilities are based.
Documents for the proposal said the facilities would be fit-for-purpose and support key training requirements. "The facilities are to provide a safe and operationally-realistic training environment, designed to fulfill the tactical and operational safety training requirements of a wide cross-section of AFP stakeholders," the tender document said.
The new outdoor shooting range is set to have up to 10 shooters use the facility at one time and primarily used for 9mm, .223 calibre and .308 calibre weapons.
While those training with 9mm weapons will be carrying out drills at a range of between five and 20 metres away, it will have the capacity for training exercises for marksmen, who will fire from 100 metres away.
"The facilities must deliver infrastructure required for their ongoing operation."
A bullet trap will also feature as part of the new shooting range, along with ballistic damping in the roof.
Tender documents showed the federal police were looking to build a multi-level scenario house to be used for training exercises.
The house is expected to be a standalone building with potentially three storeys and also be fitted out for vertical access and be visible for marksmen in the area.
The building will be fitted out with stairs, balconies, ladders, its own elevator shaft and a waste chute, with the walls able to be modified to suit the training exercise.
The facilities will be based next to training areas owned by the Australian Defence Force, which are regularly used for military exercises.
Earlier this month, military training at the facility caused many Canberrans to be woken up in the middle of the night, with noises from the drills being heard as far away as Woden.
Those training exercises were for army cadets at the Royal Military College Duntroon.
