Both the Danbury and Western Connecticut State University police departments will be conducting a training exercise on Eighth Ave. from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Traffic on Eighth Ave. will be restricted to residents only, and the training exercise will involve Litchfield Hall, a residence hall on the WCSU Midtown campus. Members of the Danbury SWAT team will be participating in the exercise as well, therefore the campus community should not be alarmed by their presence.

For more information, you can contact Lt. Richard Montefusco at (203)-837-9300, or email
