let them shoot! better training = better policeing

Convert a building for an indoor range. Allow the public to shoot there for a fee to help offset the cost and maintain the site. Win, win for all concerned.

I beg to differ: Better training = better shooting.
But even still, that doesn't equal better policing, because that- is as a result of better training, and not just target practice.
I agree with the poster above: Build a really good -INDOOR- range for everyone, and not just the police. Any good business maximizes the use of an asset.
The police, as with anyone else, would be able to schedule times in advance, such that they are uninterrupted in their training.
Also, an indoor range would facilitate training regardless the weather.
Additionally, a really nice rifle range could be built underneath the pistol range, and have the same number of lanes/slots.
Finally, the whole idea of excluding the public from a range, fairly reeks of an uppity attitude on the part of those who are -SUPPOSED- to be servants to the rest of us. I mean, look: Who pays their salary?

I bet the NRA would have a solution. Many police agencies use local NRA facilities.
