The Town of Westfield would like you to be aware of special police training which is taking place this week.
The Westfield Police Department in conjunction with other police departments throughout the state is conducting a training exercise this week from Monday, April 23rd until Friday, April 27th under the direction of the Department of Homeland Security and Preparedness. Part of this training requires a "field exercise" that will take place at the southside train station and the Central Business District on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from approximately 11:00am until 1:30pm. During this time period you can expect an increase of police presence of approximately thirty officers however, there is no need for alarm. Today these officers will be in plainclothes and on Wednesday and Thursday the officers will be in uniform. The "field exercise" will consist of mostly observation drills with a very minimum amount of contact with pedestrians.
