According to The State, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department will participate in secretive joint exercise Monday and Tuesday with unnamed units from Ft. Bragg.
The drills are scheduled to run up to midnight on both days and occur primarily in Lower Richland, around Hopkins and Eastover. Exercises will also take place around the Screaming Eagle Road near Elgin and North Richland County near outbound Monticello Road.
According to The State, a sheriff’s department spokesman refused to provide which units from Ft. Bragg are involved. Ft. Bragg is home to the U.S. Army’s elite groups, including the Special Forces and Delta Force.

The spokesman also said the drills would be noisy at times.
“Citizens may see military and departmental vehicles traveling in and around rural and metropolitan areas and may hear ordnance being set off or fired which will be simulated/ blanks and controlled by trained personnel,” a sheriff’s department press release said.

Seriously, how many times have these so called "drills" gone live? Always makes me a bit edgy.

A secret exercise, but "noisy at times".

According to one commenter who appears to have personal experience about the event on the linked website, the sheriff's role is to act as a buffer between the military exercise and the general public.

So it's not a training exercise for the sheriffs after all. The military doesn't have its own towns to practice on, so they go out into a nearby rural area and practice there.
