IHCC Receives Grants for Facility Renovation

Indian Hills Community College has been named the recipient of three community grants to support the creation of the new Criminal Justice Training Facility for current and future law enforcement officers.

The Van Buren Foundation, Inc., the Community Foundation of Van Buren County and the Mahaska County Community Foundation have each awarded the college $10,000 to help renovate over 10,000-square-feet of existing space at the Workforce Training Center on the Indian Hills North Campus in Ottumwa.

The center will include a multipurpose training room with features including an evidence collection laboratory, movable walls, a virtual reality training space, classrooms and locker room facilities.

The Criminal Justice Training Center renovation is scheduled to begin this winter and is planned to be open to students and local law enforcement officers for training in the spring of 2023.
