Hands-on training for the Michigan State Police means more than watching a power point and eating donuts.

Seeing a Corvette burned to the ground may make car lovers cringe but it was a valuable exercise for the MSP fire investigators at Michigan State Police Training Academy. The C4, along with several other vehicles and a garage were intentionally set aflame to help law enforcement understand how cars are impacted by fire.

The Michigan State Police Training Academy in Lansing has housing for more than 200 students, 8 classrooms, a computer skills training center, a 250-seat auditorium, a training scenario house and a shooting range. There is also a large road course on 42 adjacent acres where tomorrow's troopers learn to drive squad cars in all conditions.
