The Regina Police Service Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) is conducting regular monthly training in Regina today (Wednesday September 17, 2014) and wishes to advise the public of the specific locations involved so as not to cause any unnecessary alarm.
The team will be practicing at the following locations – with the permission of the owners of the properties:
- 2400 block of Victoria Ave
- 2400 block of 12th Avenue
- 1900 block of Smith Street
- 1900 block of McIntyre Street
These locations were chosen because they provide a specific unique location for training.
Anyone in the area will notice police vehicles, including a large Tactical Armoured Vehicle, or TAV, as well as police members in SWAT uniform . All of the necessary safety checks have been performed on equipment and there is no live ammunition involved in this training. The officers will be training on Wednesday September 17, 2014 from approximately 5:00 p.m. until midnight. Other than the sight of police officers training at these locations, there should be no disruption to the usual everyday activity and traffic flow in the area.
