Jan 13, 2015 Aurora, CO – Late last year on a cold, snowy morning Aurora Police Department cadets staged an active shooter exercise at 830 Potomac in Aurora, a 113,000 square foot Northstar Commercial Partners property that is for sale or lease, giving the cadets’ invaluable training and experience in keeping us safe.
Northstar Commercial Partners has a long history of helping many causes, and a particularly strong belief in supporting local police efforts. Last year’s exercise is just the first, as there is already one more scheduled for next month as Northstar is happy to provide access to vacant properties to help with such training.
“Given the Aurora theatre shooting and everything going on today throughout America, we thought it was especially important at this time to step forward and support the Aurora Police Department” said Brian Watson, Founder and CEO of Northstar Commercial Partners. “The work that local police do to protect the public is incredibly important, and we want to do what we can to support their efforts. Providing this building for the training exercise while it’s on the market, was an easy decision for us.”
Dozens of cadets participated in the exercise, which lasted for several hours. While they were not able to comment specifically on the details of the exercise, the officer in charge of the training did note that without the donation of the space the cadets would not have been able to receive such useful, life-like, live action training.
Northstar Commercial Partners and its Founder and CEO Brian Watson are deeply committed to the community. You can learn more about their efforts at www.NorthstarCommercialPartners.com or at www.BrianWatson.us
