Military Police will be conducting training in Tin Can Bay in late October
Military Police will be honing their skills across the Wide Bay region with Exercise Archibald, taking place between 25 and 28 October.
The Australian Army’s 1st Military Police Battalion’s annual specialist certification activity exercise will involve Military Police from Darwin, Townsville, and Brisbane and will cover three components; Forensic Scenes of Crime, Close Personal Protection, and Military Police Working Dog training.
Army personnel will be carrying weapons and blank ammunition and will be conducting a number of planned and controlled blank fire activities around specific venues and public spaces in Tin Can Bay.
Nearby residents will be advised in advance of planned blank fire activity timings and locations via letterbox drops and public notices.
The ADF is committed to building a more potent, capable and agile future force to better meet and respond to future challenges related to the defence of Australia and its national interests.
The ADF greatly appreciates the support of the Wide Bay community.
