Bang! Bang! It’s the sound of the Police

A Police training exercise today at the old Arlington Apartments in Hopper Street will involve loud bangs.

There will be an increased Police presence in the area between 9.00am and 3.00pm, with some staff carrying firearms.

During these times, loud bangs may be heard coming from the venue.

Police would like to reassure residents in the area that there is no cause for concern, as this is a routine training exercise.
