Joint Police & Military Training Exercises Being Held In Los Angeles

January 24, 2012

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Joint military training exercises will be held evenings in downtown Los Angeles through Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD will be providing support for the exercises, which will also be held in other portions of the greater Los Angeles area, police said.

Training sites ``have been carefully selected to ensure the event does not negatively impact the citizens of Los Angeles and their daily routine,'' a department official said.

The training, which a department official said would involve helicopters, has been coordinated with local authorities and owners of the training sites, police said.

Police said safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and military personnel involved.

The exercises are closed to the public, police said.

The exercises are designed to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements, police said.

On Thursday June 06, 2013 - The Los Angeles Police Department will be acting out a scenario on Figueroa between 5th and 4th Street.  This demonstration is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM.  This demonstration involves:
·         “Blank” gunfire,
·         Low flying police helicopters,
·         LAPD officers repelling from the helicopters
·         Emergency Vehicles with Lights and Sirens.
This is a notification for Property Managers and Directors of Security that this is a DEMONSTRATION only and not a real time emergency.   The LAPD asks that you please notify all tenants and visitors of this event, so that they can plan appropriately.  Along with this event, there will  be some temporary street closures.  The closures are as follows:
·         Figueroa  between 4th and 5th  - Closing 10 minutes prior to event start and will remain closed for the duration
·         N/B Figueroa at 7th

·         W/B 5th Street at Flower
All of the roads with the exception of Figueroa will be opened as soon as possible.  Traffic coming N/B on Figueroa will be warned that Figueroa is closed so that they can turn off without having to get on the freeway at 5th Street.
