Manitoba Police Training Exercise Underway at Legislative Building

01 March 2018 Author :  

Manitoba Justice and the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba advise there is a police training exercise underway at the Legislative Building tonight, simulating a serious incident that would require a significant and co-ordinated tactical response.  The exercise includes the use of simulated firearms that make realistic sounds, which is why the province wants to ensure people in the area are aware.

The Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) is leading the training exercise, which includes several dozen officers and actors.  Employees working in the building this evening were asked to leave to ensure only people involved in the training exercise are on-site.  Legislative Security Services and WPS are restricting pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the grounds until 11 p.m.

Normal operations at the Legislative Building will resume tomorrow.
