The "joint military training exercises" being supported by our fine po-pos are being staged, in part, "to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments," according to an LAPD statement.

... Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved. As such, this training is not open to the public.
