Police have warned the public not to be alarmed if they see an increase in armed police in Belconnen tonight as a training exercise will be in operation.
ACT Policing said it and partner agencies would be training between 7:30 pm and midnight tonight (Tuesday 26 November 2019) in the Belconnen area.
It said there would be an increased number of uniformed emergency personnel visible in Belconnen.
The public should not be alarmed if they see police or other personnel carrying weapons or that any of the locations are under any threat.
In the event ACT Policing is required to respond to an actual incident, information will be provided via its official social media pages and the ACT Policing website.
ACT Policing said training such as this helped ensure that its ability to respond to incidents was continually improved.
ACT Policing was not able to provide further information for operational reasons.
