Police training may slow traffic

The Spokesman-Review

The Spokane Police Department Traffic Unit is hosting a three-day training exercise for police escorts beginning today that may affect traffic on area streets.

Motorcycle officers from across the state will be trained on techniques for escorting dignitaries, according to a police news release.

Today and Friday, the motorcycle officers will be practicing in and around the Spokane area, and drivers should be prepared for slowdowns in traffic throughout the day on side streets and Interstate 90.

Drivers are asked to pull to the right and stop for emergency vehicles and the motorcade.
