Army And Police Conduct Security Training Exercises At Gold Coast Shopping Centres

No need to stress if you spot a heap of soldiers and police officers around Marina Mirage in Main Beach early tomorrow morning.

The Australian Defence Force and Queensland Police Service are conducting another joint security training exercise at the shopping centre on Wednesday, ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

The exercise, involving military watercraft and vehicles, tactical equipment and soldiers carrying weapons, will occur in the early hours of Wednesday morning to minimise disruptions to the community.

It comes after a similar drill at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre on Tuesday morning.

A statement from QPS emphasised there is no known specific threat to Queensland, or the Commonwealth Games but they're making sure they are prepared to respond to any event that might unfold, to ensure we host a safe and secure Games.
