Duxbury: Police using old high school for drills

Pin It

School’s out for good at the old Duxbury High School, but it now has a new use according to Duxbury Police Chief Matt Clancy, who says they’re conducting law enforcement training drills in the old school. Clancy says it’ll be happening through the end of the day on Thursday.

“Over the next couple of days, particularly on Wednesday and Thursday, we’re going to be running active shooter drills at the school for the Duxbury Police force,” Clancy said. “In addition to that, we’re going to have a couple of regional SWAT teams coming in to do some training in the facility.”

He says everything should be happening inside the building.

“Anything we’re doing shouldn’t be audible even in the immediate neighborhood. But if folks do hear something, know that that is what’s going on,” Clancy said.

But if you’re unsure, he says feel free to give police a call just to make sure.
