The Chicago Police Department plans to conduct a training exercise Wednesday evening and overnight in the downtown area.

The exercise will use “numerous resources” and will be similar to other exercises over the summer, CPD’s 1st District said on social media.

Those summer exercises were done in response to civil unrest and looting that hit the Loop area twice in late May and early August.

“Don’t be alarmed if you see this deployment training exercise,” police said Twitter.
