CHATTANOOGA — After decades of shooting into an earthen bank on a 12-acre piece of land next to the Tennessee River, local law enforcement officers are forced to find a new place for target practice.

The Moccasin Bend National Park site will revert to the park by the end of the year, according to an agreement signed about 30 years ago. The site is used as a training ground for law enforcement shooting, tactical maneuvers and disposal of explosive materials.
