Don't be alarmed if you see a massive police presence around the Oakview Mall on Wednesday night.
The Omaha Field Office of the FBI will host a training exercise to simulate a complex incident in a public venue. The exercise will begin late Wednesday evening, after the mall closes, and conclude prior to normal business hours on Thursday, May 1, 2014 for mall tenants and patrons.
“This training exercise allows us to strengthen and reinforce the coordination required among law enforcement, first responders and private sector partners. In this manner, together we can effectively and efficiently address a complex critical incident,” said Thomas R. Metz, Special Agent in Charge of the Omaha Office of the FBI.
