D.C. police unveiled a new $6 million training facility Wednesday afternoon.

The complex includes a tactical village that allows officers to simulate situations in an area the size of a couple of city blocks, News4's Tom Sherwood reported.

Because it's indoors, they'll be able to use it year-round.

The facility is located on the site of the old police shooting range in southwest D.C.
