From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, the SWAT team will conduct emergency training exercises on the high school campus with the assistance of school employees on the ground and a California Highway Patrol helicopter above. The drill is closed to the public and residents are encouraged to stay away from the area to remain safe.

The regional SWAT Team includes officers and command staff from the Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach and Cal Poly police departments.

The Paso Robles Police Department says the campus training exercise is important to the security and safety of the communities.

Paso Robles High School begins its school year on August 27.

    The swat team should be raiding City Hall where the real crooks reside.

    Dog and pony show waste of money.

    A simple and single drone strike would eliminate any potential or perceived problems…just like is done by US military around the rest of the world.

    Damned if they practice, Damned if they sit and wait.
    At least under Chief Burton they are looking for answers to the Community’s needs. Under Chief Hot Lips they would have trying to see how many could fit in a hot tub…

    Get those kids ready for a Police State. Nice.

    So much easier to throw words and money at a problem AFTER the fact, than it is to prevent or avoid it altogether.

        You’re either new here or a troll. rOy is anything but a liberal. Now he does have a strong Libertarian streak in him but that only overlaps liberalism on a few “Rights” issues.

        Your bias seems to be toward fascism except for the gun control issue. Do you really have that much trust in the law enforcement community anymore? (Many of them are now moving toward gun control! and even those that are trustworthy can’t be everywhere at all times.) Are you one of those who has been so inundated by media emphasis on scare tactics that you feel you must rely on Big Brother to protect you?
