When Less-Lethal Systems, Inc., (ALS) announced last year it was moving its headquarters and manufacturing operations from Arkansas to Taylor County, the company also stated it would be building a training facility for law enforcement and corrections personnel.

AMTEC held a dedication ceremony for its new manufacturing facility in August, and this week it was time for the training campus to take a turn in the spotlight as the company held an Industry and Media Day Tuesday, Dec. 10.
