Military police conduct close personal protection training activities in Tin Can Bay
Military police will hone their skills in the Wide Bay area with Exercise Archibald, which runs October 25-28.
The annual Australian Army 1st Military Police Battalion Specialist Certification Activity Exercise will involve military police from Darwin, Townsville and Brisbane and will cover three strands; Forensic crime scenes, close personal protection and military police working dog training.
Army personnel will carry weapons and blank ammunition and conduct a number of planned and controlled blank firing activities around specific sites and public spaces in Tin Can Bay.
Nearby residents will be notified in advance of scheduled times and locations of white-light activities through mailboxes and public notices.
The ADF is committed to building a more powerful, capable and agile future force to better meet and respond to future challenges in defending Australia and its national interests.
The ADF greatly appreciates the support of the Wide Bay community.
