The Shawnee County Sheriff's Department wants to build a firing range near Forbes Field.

Tuesday Undersheriff Scott Holladay met with the Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority to discuss the possibilty.

Holladay says the department would like their own range to access when they need it.

He says the south side of the airfield would be an ideal location for a range.

He says it would be located near the existing Topeka police range.

The MTAA and Sheriff's Department are continuing the negotiation process.
