The CoESPU barracks was named after Lt.Gen. Antonio Chinotto, a hero of WWI. In the lasts 25 years, more than 10.000 Carabinieri have been trained in the "Gen. A. Chinotto" barracks, attending either their second year course for Non-Commissioned Officers (Marescialli), or a three-month course for Brigadieri (Sergeants), as well as many different specialized courses for Station Commanders, Investigators, Mobile patrol team leaders, Crime Scene Investigators and so on.
Recently the School has provided pre-deployment training courses for the units chosen to be employed in peacekeeping missions, as part of the Multinational Specialized Units in Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan.
During the last five years the Centre has managed and conducted PSO courses, training and lecturing more than 3500 attendees; that has become its programmed future mission.
The barracks has all the facilities necessaries for modern PSO training, to include: a 100 meter shooting range, a digital simulator for Fire Arm Training system (F.A.T.S.) and a well equipped gym. CoESPU also offers all the training curricula of the prominent subjects of the PSO field like, geopolitical analysis, cultural awareness, international humanitarian law, human rights and police tactical instructions and training.
