The city, school district and South Texas College will break ground Friday on a regional law enforcement education center.

After years of planning, the city Pharr, the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District and South Texas College will break ground on the Regional Center for Public Safety Excellence on South Cage Boulevard.

“This is going to help our professionals study here for everything that they need,” said Mario Reyna, the dean for business and technology at South Texas College.

Pharr donated 59 acres on South Cage Boulevard, according to a news release from the city. The school district donated another 10 acres and $1 million for construction. And South Texas College will offer degree and certificate programs at the new center.

The campus will include classrooms, a shooting range and a driving course.

“Austin has facilities, separate facilities like this. San Antonio has facilities like this,” Reyna said. “But the Valley does not have anything like this.”
