Police training exercise planned for Taylor Residence Hall July 24

On July 24, Taylor Residence Hall will be the location for a joint training exercise by the University Police Department and the Winston-Salem Police Department. A similar training event occurred recently in Poteat Residence Hall.

Uniformed, armed police officers will participate in the exercise that will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Taylor Residence Hall. The officers will be inside Taylor for much of the exercise, but they will be outside at times.

At certain times, a firearm will be used to fire blanks inside the building as part of the training activity. No live ammunition will be used.

The training will not interfere with normal campus activities on Hearn Plaza or elsewhere.

Anyone with questions about the exercise may call the University Police Department at 758-5591.
