Emergency Response Full Scale Exercise


As part of our efforts to provide professional service to the community, the Miami-Dade Police Department continues to conduct training to prepare officers in the event of an active shooter situation. Dadeland Mall, in partnership with the Miami-Dade Police Department, will be hosting an active shooter full-scale exercise on their property. The training exercise will consist of an emergency inside the mall, and officers will have all departmental resources available to effectively manage such incident.
