Bomb Threat Turns Into Training Exercise

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department received a call of a bomb threat in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles.

On July 28, 2006, around noon, Hollywood Area officers received information of a threat of a possible explosion sometime after 2:00 PM, at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard. The Los Angeles Police Department Bomb Squad, Los Angeles City Fire Department, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department along with other LAPD personnel responded to the location.

After a thorough search of the area there was no evidence to substantiate the threat. Based on the amount of resources already at scene, it was decided that an impromptu training exercise should be conducted.

"The fact that bomb threats are acts of terrorism, training and preparation to deal with these types of incidents are critical to the safety of everyone," said Deputy Chief Richard Roupoli. "This exercise was invaluable and was a true testament to the collaboration that exists between law enforcement and fire personnel in the City and County of Los Angeles."

Questions may be directed to Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
