The DOCR Staff Training Center will be constructed on the site of the existing MCCF proximate to security systems, equipment and facilities for practical training of Correctional Officers, and to provide real world situations to Correctional Officers and other staff in the performance of their duties The project incorporates technical requirements from the Detention Center Reuse project in addition to updated space requirements developed by an interagency working group.

Cost Change

Project was previously approved for preparation of a Program of Requirements only. This provides for both design and construction of a new facility.


The renovation of the existing Montgomery County Detention Center (MCDC) facility (Detention Center Reuse PDF#429755) which also included space for staff training, was determined not to be cost effective due to the need for significant capital expenditures, life cycle costs, and continued maintenance as a result of aging systems. It was determined to be cost effective to locate a staff training center at the MCCF.

Fiscal Note

This project is eligible for State funding of up to 50 percent of project costs.


A pedestrian impact analysis has been completed for this project.

The Executive asserts that this project conforms to the requirements of relevant local plans, as required by the Maryland Economic Growth, Resource Protection and Planning Act.
