Occupying 430 acres in Moore County, Samarcand Training Academy provides correctional, in-service, law enforcement and advanced law enforcement training.
A 2013 North Carolina General Assembly allocation of $10.4 million has been used to convert the former Samarkand Manor into a corrections and law enforcement training center for the Department of Public Safety. Samarcand has six classrooms, dormitory space capable of housing overnight students, and a cafeteria.
The primary purpose of the academy is to conduct basic training for correctional officers, probation/parole officers and juvenile justice employees, as well as other in-service training. The law enforcement agencies within DPS will be able to use Samarcand to conduct in-service and advanced training programs, while other local, state and federal agencies may also conduct training at the facility from time to time.
