A satellite campus of Monroe Community College, the Public Safety Training Center (also called the Public Safety Training Facility or PSTF) is a unique joint venture between the college and local public safety organizations.

The facility is a diverse mix of offices, classrooms, and hands-on training simulators. The main building houses offices for several municipal public safety organizations as well as classrooms. The Monroe County Office of Emergency Preparedness, County Fire Bureau, and the Rochester Fire Department Training Division all have offices in the Center. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office and Rochester Police Department also have a strong presence at the facility. Behind this building is the hands on training area.

The training grounds have an aircraft fire simulator, car fire simulator, a burn building, a railroad tanker car, and several other simulators for fire training. Also located in the complex is an outdoor firing range for Law Enforcement Officers.

The facility is home to MCC's Fire Protection Technology and Emergency Medical Programs. It is also the location of the recruit academies for the Rochester Fire Department, Rochester Police Department, and Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Often times, suburban departments will send their recruits through the academy with the Rochester recruits.

Even though MCC does not hold any of it's criminal justice classes here, staff from the college often refer to the facility as the "Criminal Justice Training Center" or some variant.
