If you see teams of armed police officers storming Bay Area buildings this weekend it is likely part of a large exercise called Urban Shield.

You may see them in San Francisco scaling the Transamerica Pyramid or responding to a mock terrorist attack in Livermore.

Police departments from around the Bay Area, the FBI and three international teams will take part.

Urban Shield is considered the largest tactical exercise in the nation.
