The Arroyo Grande Police Department will be hosting this year’s regional active shooter training exercise at the Arroyo Grande High School on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 and Saturday, August 3, 2019. The training will begin at approximately 8:00 A.M. and end at approximately 5:00 P.M. on both training dates.
During the training you should expect to see a large law enforcement presence at the high school. You may also hear loud explosions or the sounds of simulated gun shots throughout the day, both of which are not emergencies and are part of the training exercise. Several areas of the campus will be blocked off with caution tape and “Police Training” signs. A safety officer will be easily identifiable with a red training shirt and the participating officers will be in police uniform.
In addition to the police active shooter training, PG&E will also be conducting training in the area. Helicopters may be used in these drills. Please contact the Arroyo Grande Police Department for questions or concerns at (805) 473-5100.
