June 11, 2009

Los Angeles:  From June 15-27, 2009, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) will be providing support for joint military training exercises in and around the greater Los Angeles area.

The operations will be routine training exercises conducted by military personnel, designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments and meet mandatory training certification requirements.  

Training sites have been carefully selected so that activities do not interfere with the daily routines of the local populace.  Safety precautions have also been taken to prevent risk to the general public, as well as to military personnel involved.  The training is not open to the public.

Questions or concerns may be directed to Officer Steve Scallon at 213-305-4685.
