     After the base was sold to Burlington County in late 1963, it was converted into the Burlington County Civil Defense Center.

Later, the County's Police, Fire and First Aid academy was housed at the Center.
     This scene shows police officers practicing at the target range, which was located at the former missile fueling area, using the high berm. The former barracks can be seen at the upper center of the photo, at this time housing the academy.
In 1966, the former Administration Building was used as the headquarters for the newly formed Evesham Township Police. This photo was taken in front of the building showing the gate and guard house with Tomlinson Mill Road on the right.
