Law enforcers are sharpening their skills in Spring Township.

Members of the Berks County Emergency Response Team trained at the former site of St. Alban's Church.

The Chester County SWAT team, Berks County Jail Team and the Reading Bomb Squad are also using the facility for training.

Officials said using a real, unfamiliar building helps enhance team members' skills.
