In cooperation with the FBI, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department will be holding drills at The Shops at Mission Viejo tonight.
OCSD Sergeant Victor Pablo said they have set up base at Saddleback College’s parking lot 9, and later tonight they will assess terrorism response capability in a joint operation with the FBI.
“This area (Lot 9) is easily accessed for responding agencies,” Pablo said.
The simulated trailer will be conducted after the mall closes tonight.
“We work closely with all agencies if something of this nature happen,” he said.
Pablo added that OCSD was invited by the FBI to participate in the terrorism assessment drill about a month ago.
