Published on April 19, 2017

ARLINGTON, Va. — The Arlington County Police Department's (ACPD) Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team will be conducting a joint training exercise with our federal partners on Wednesday, April 19 and Thursday, April 20 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Wilson Building located at 1601 Wilson Boulevard. The purpose of the training is to simulate an emergency situation and a coordinated response by law enforcement. Realistic training is critical to enhancing ACPD's capabilities to serve and protect the community to the best of our ability.

All training activities will be confined to the interior of the Wilson Building. Residents can expect to see an increase in public safety vehicles and law enforcement officers in the area. Those traveling near the Wilson Building may hear noise originating from the building but are reminded that this is a training exercise only.

This is a closed training exercise.
