The Regina Police Service wishes to advise the media and members of the public of a training session for the Regina Police Service Emergency Services Teams, taking place on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, from approximately 9:00 a.m. to approximately 3:00 p.m. in the 5000 block of Wascana Parkway, southeast of the SIAST Wascana campus.
This training session is part of Emergency Services regular monthly training and will involve members of the Crisis Negotiators and Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams and Explosives Disposal Unit. People will be able to carry on with their daily activities; however, they will notice police members in regular tactical attire as well as a number of police vehicles in the immediate area. There is no cause for concern, as this is a training exercise only. There will be no ammunition involved in this exercise.
Members of the media who wish to observe and/or report on this training are asked to confirm with Elizabeth Popowich (numbers listed above) and then meet in the 5000 block Wascana Parkway, on Wednesday, December 14th, between 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
