Active Threat Training Set for Thursday Aug 9

On August 9th, 2018, the Danville Police Department will conduct their annual “Active Threat” training. This year’s exercise will take place on the campus of Del Amigo High School (186 Del Amigo Rd.), from approximately 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. During training the campus will be closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Residents and visitors to the area should be aware that during the training, police officers will be engaging in several scenarios on campus involving intruders or active shooters. Volunteer role players will be on scene, acting as victims, staff, or intruders. Police officers will engage in several scenarios which may involve loud noises and tactical responses. Officers will use ‘simulated ammunition’ (small paint balls) in the training exercise.

The training will involve a number of police officers and emergency services vehicles. During the training the Danville Police Department requests that residents and visitors refrain from attempting to enter the Del Amigo campus or communicate with the officers involved in the training. The training will not affect any local roadways. However, parking on Del Amigo will be off limits the night prior and during the event as we will need parking for ambulances, fire trucks, police vehicles and volunteer vehicles. Signs will be posted as a reminder the day prior to the event.

Active threat training allows the Danville Police Department to update and refine the skills needed to provide the community with the highest level of service possible. It is an important event that unites the School District, Fire/EMS and Police so that during a real life active threat incident, we are able to work efficiently and effectively with each other to save as many lives as possible.

Questions regarding the active threat exercise can be directed to Officer Vradenburg at 925-856-7014 or vvradenburg@danville.ca.gov
