Police training will bring mock gunfire to Annapolis

February 02, 2010

Sounds of fake gunfire and clusters of police cars in downtown Annapolis on Wednesday will signal the start of an Annapolis police training program. Police said the exercise, in which department employees are to act as victims, is designed to simulate a shooter and injured people. The mock emergency is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. and run most of the day at the old Annapolis Recreation Center at 9 St. Mary's St., near the City Dock. The training will continue every Wednesday for seven weeks, police said.
