Police roll out training exercise

Police will be conducting routine training exercises at a number of vacant buildings across the country this week.

Police say the training will include loud noises and bangs which may be heard by members of the public living in the general area.

“Please be assured that all activities will be held within the confines of the site and there is no safety risk to nearby residents,” Police said in a statement.

“This is part of our regular training for specialist Police groups which runs across the country throughout the year. This type of training is a common occurrence for Police and could not happen without the support of the community.”
