Simulated Terrorist Attack Puts Miami Police To The Test

MIAMI (CBS4) – If there was a terrorist attack in downtown Miami, would the city’s police and emergency managers be able to handle it?

On Sunday morning they put it to the test in a simulated attack on the Consulate General of Israel headquarters on North Biscayne Boulevard. Dubbed “Operation Alliance” the event measured the response capabilities of the police department’s police tactical units and the Office of Emergency Management.

Overseeing the drill were Miami Police Chief Miguel Exposito and Ofer Bavly, the Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico.
