Barrie Swat Team Using Former Restaurant and Inn As Training Grounds

Loud Noises Expected Until Friday

Expect to see a heavy police presence off Downtown Barrie for the rest of the week, but don’t worry, it’s all just practice.

The Tactical Support Unit is using the former Knights Inn and Sticky Fingers Bar and Grill on Dunlop St. to conduct specialized training. Some of the exercices being performed could involve plenty of loud noises; police say specialized equipment is being used in mock real life situations.

The training session is expected to wrap up as of Friday.
