Columbia Police To Hold Assailant Training

The Columbia Police Department, in partnership with Stephens College, will be holding a full scale active assailant exercise on February 28 from 6:00 until 9PM on the Stephens College Campus.

The exercise will take place in and around the Pillsbury Science Center and Windsor Auditorium buildings.


The perimeter will be inaccessible to students and the public. There will also be a temporary total closure of East Walnut Street between College Avenue and Ripley Street.

People in the area should expect to see a number of emergency personnel in the area during those times.

Columbia Police say there is no need to call 911 or take any other actions.
