Tactical Design North worked as the Tactical Training Architect for the Police Academy masterplan and concept design focusing on the creation of a city wide training system which included outdoor gun ranges for qualifications, Practical Training Facilities, precision rifle ranges, and and outdoor tactical house. In addition  to the outdoor facilities, there is a support building housing classrooms, an armory, gun smithing facility, magazine, and an indoor gun range downtown.The Anchorage Police Academy occupies a prominant site along the Knik Arm of the Cook Inlet and holds a commanding view over the arm. Extensive time was spent examining the ballistic layouts of the site and how the ranges will sit within it. Since the facility would operate primarily in the dark for most of the year, large windows were incorporated into the academic building to maximize the sustainability of the building allowing, the maximum amount of daylghting as possible.
