January 09, 2008

The District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department and GW's University Police Department are participating in a joint training exercise today at Mabel Nelson Thurston Hall located at 1900 F St., NW, on GW's Foggy Bottom Campus. The so-called "active shooter" training exercise will help enhance collaboration efforts between the city and the university. The exercise will help facilitate the understanding of designated roles and protocols involved during an emergency of this nature.

This is an exercise, not a real event. Please avoid the area.
