Subject: Noise Advisory for Jewel Lake Area Residents


Residents in the vicinity of the APD Training Center located at 3760 West Dimond Blvd. may hear a blast around 7:30 p.m. this evening. Anchorage Police will be conducting a flash bang demonstration for the Citizens Academy at the APD Training Center. The demonstration is expected to last less than five minutes, and the noise will be heard for only a few seconds. Overcast conditions may increase noise and vibrations. Residents in the area should not be alarmed if they hear this noise during this time, however, citizens are urged to call Police if they believe they are hearing an unrelated noise or separate event.

A flash bang is a less lethal tool utilized by officers as a distraction device. It creates a disorienting flash and bang, and does not generate shrapnel.
