The Midland Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies joined Midland Park Mall this morning in a multi-agency exercise to test their response to emergency events.
Law enforcement officials and mall staff participated in various drills to determine what they can do to improve a coordinated response to emergency situations, such as an active shooter or bomb threat.
City of Midland Public Information Officer Sara Higgins says despite the freezing temperatures everything went according to plan.
“We enjoyed partnering with the mall so that if anything happens in the future, no matter what it is, we have set up good lines of communication and cooperation to control emergency situations,” says Higgins.
