Active Police Training at Monte Vista High School 1/31

Copied from the Danville Police Department

ADVISORY: Active Threat Training Thursday at Monte Vista On January 31, 2019, the Town of Danville will conduct Active Threat training at Monte Vista High School. The exercise involves the use of simulated firearms and explosive sounds.

No live ammunition will be used. The training will be limited to the areas within the campus and will not extend into the surrounding neighborhoods. The Active Threat Drill is scheduled to run from approximately 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.

The training is designed to simulate a critical incident and provide response training for law enforcement and fire personnel, and allows the Danville Police Department to update and refine essential skills needed to provide the community with the highest level of service possible.

The exercise will involve a number of police officers and emergency services vehicles. The activities taking place on campus will be simulated for training purposes only and there will NOT be an actual event. The Danville Police Department requests that residents and visitors refrain from attempting to enter the east portion of the campus or communicate with the officers involved in the training. This drill will be limited to the high school campus.

No local roadways will be affected. However, parking on the center horseshoe and east parking lot of the Monte Vista High School campus will be off limits during the training event as we will need parking for ambulances, fire trucks, police vehicles and volunteer vehicles. There will be signs posted as a reminder the day prior. Those spots will need to be reserved for the training in order to make it run successfully.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may produce. For questions or concerns, email Officer Alcantara or Officer Murillo at Dalcantara@danville.ca.gov or Vvradenburg@danville.ca.gov

Sponsors Still Needed For Downtown Art Project

Dogs of Danville Unleashed on danvillesocial.com

If you or anyone you know is interested in helping get this new art program off the ground, now is the time to act.

The Town of Danville is still looking for sponsors to help launch an exciting public art project for 2019:

Dogs of Danville, Unleashed! This public art project presents an opportunity to be featured as one of the 15 sponsors for this inaugural program. The goal of this program is to create a temporary outdoor public art project displaying beautifully painted dog sculptures throughout Downtown Danville, accompanied by a walking tour and passport designed to attract and engage residents and visitors to downtown Danville between May and September 2019. Sponsorship comes with multiple benefits for the businesses, such as:

1. Each Dog will be paired with a juried local artist to create the design painted on the dog.

2. Dogs will be strategically placed throughout the downtown, in front of sponsoring businesses if appropriate, and will be on display for 4-month.

3. Businesses, business organizations or individual donors will be promoted in all marketing collateral throughout the duration of the project through Press Releases, Town newsletter articles, online advertisements, multiple websites, social media promotion, etc.

4. Dogs will include a custom placard on the pedestal indicating the sponsor’s name, address, and website.

5. A colorful walking tour booklet will be developed, featuring the location of each dog, the sponsor business information and any promotions offered (if applicable). Guests can win prizes for completed passports at the closing reception.

6. Dogs will be auctioned off at the end of the event and 100% of the proceeds will go towards developing a future similar art program for the Town of Danville.

For more information and to learn how to become a sponsor, contact Cultural Arts Program Coordinator Marija Nelson Bleier at (925) 314-3460 or mbleier@danville.ca.gov. [Business Sponsorship Form]
