Expect increased military presence

Residents in Prince Edward, Hastings and Northumberland counties may notice an increased military presence as personnel from the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command will be conducting training from June 12 to 28, 2024.

Specifically, training is to be centered around the communities of Picton, Belleville, Campbellford, Quinte West, Tweed and Stirling.

Lieutenant Melanie Aquiqi, DND Media Relations, states residents may notice an increase in military vehicles and aircraft, see uniformed and non-uniformed military personnel with personal firearms and hear noises associated with explosives and small firearms. Only simulated and blank ammunition and explosives will be used as part of these training exercises.

“Military exercises in urban and rural environments that are unknown to our personnel leads to greater expertise that enable us to serve the national interest wherever we operate,” said Aquiqi. “The Canadian Special Operations Forces Command is extremely thankful for the support of local landowners and the understanding of the communities within which it conducts valuable training. “
