II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The Department of Public Safety is requesting a CIP for advanced planning of a dormitory for the Training Division, located in Carson City.
17. Project Justification: The Department of Public Safety's Training Division is mandated by NRS 480.140(7) to provide training to the employees of the Department of Public Safety. The Training Division conducts all initial Peace Officer Standardized Training at the basic academy level. The Training Division also provides annual recertification training of officers within the Department. The training Division also hosts training for civilian staff, as well as supervisory and management training. The Training Division currently leases dormitory space from B&G at the Stewart Facility. These facilities are aging and are in need of major renovations. Although, some of the renovations are expected to be completed in State Fiscal 2019 there will more renovations required in the future, including structural. Building a dormitory facility on the Training Division's existing land will allow the Division to save money that would be needed for renovations and allow the Training Division to better utilize our current land. Having the dorms located near the academy prevents the cadets that are attending the academy or students that are attending classes having to drive to another location. If plans move forward for the Stewart Facility the Training Division would no longer have access to the dorms. Not having dormitories would have a huge impact on the Divisions that have officers located in rural counties, since a large number of the cadets that will be assigned to the rural counties live in the dormitories while attending the academy.
18. Project Background Information: The Training Division currently leases dormitory space from B&G at the Stewart Facility. The Training Division is located at 2101 Snyder Ave. Carson City. The Department of Corrections relinquished use and control of five acres of land to the Department in 1984. The existing academy building was donated to the Department in 1985 by Claude Howard. The requested dorms would be built on this land and the academy building would remain intact.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: N/A
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: N/A
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: N/A

Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.): N/A
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The increasing demand for Public Safety in the State of Nevada increases the training needs provided by the Training Division. If this project is not approved more renovations will need to be completed to the aging building at the Stewart Facility, where the dorms are currently located.
