Training and Exercises
The ACSO operates a police academy as well as training exercises for the greater law enforcement community in the Bay Area.
Hosted by the ACSO, Urban Shield is the largest urban "SWAT" exercise so far in the USA. Held in the fall, it provides an opportunity for police special teams from all over the nation to train in 20 scenarios over a continuous 50 hour exercise. These scenarios range from an active shooter on the UC Berkeley campus to airplane hijacking to maritime interdiction and a 20 mile hike.

Famous quotes containing the words exercises and/or training:
“The man who arrives young believes that he exercises his will because his star is shining. The man who only asserts himself at thirty has a balanced idea of what will power and fate have each contributed, the one who gets there at forty is liable to put the emphasis on will alone.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
“At present I feel like a caged animal, bound up by the luxury, comfort and respectability of my position. I cant get the training that I want without neglecting my duty.”
—Beatrice Potter Webb (18581943)
