The Pleasanton Police Department will conduct an overnight training exercise starting at 9 p.m. tonight at the Stoneridge Shopping Center.
The training session, to start as soon as stores close at Stoneridge, is to promote law enforcement preparedness in response to an emergency situation. It is expected to conclude at 2 a.m. Tuesday.
"This is strictly a training exercise and is not being held in response to any current threat," said Police Lieutenant James M. Knox.
"Every effort was made to schedule the exercise so it does not impact normal operations at the center," he added. "The public may see law enforcement activity during the exercise, but it is respectfully asked to avoid the property during this time."
