Members of the Dayton Police Department, in partnership with the owner and management of Club Masque, will conduct an active shooter training on Wednesday, Jan. 24, inside the club, 34 N. Jefferson St.
Club Masque is a multi-level entertainment complex which hosts events and large crowds. The purpose of the training is to allow officers and emergency personnel a chance to practice response inside a large facility.
The Dayton Police Department wants to make the public aware of this training, since there will be police and other emergency personnel and equipment around the club for much of the day. The training should not produce traffic disruptions for downtown motorists. The Department is committed to ensuring the safety of downtown residents, businesses and visitors.
Police spokeswoman Cara Zinski-Neace said that Club Masque was selected for the training because the owner has been very cooperative and supportive and that the club is a challenging environment for training officers.
