Have You Noticed Increased Security At The Mall Of America?

Security measures have been increased at the Mall of America for the holiday season.

The Mall of America is much more than just a place to pick up your holiday gifts. As the largest shopping mall in the United States, the mall has everything from your favorite clothing store to indoor theme parks. The high number of shoppers headed to the Mall of America this holiday season, the shopping center has recently announced that it will be increasing its security.

After a terror group that has been linked to al-Qaeda threatened an attack on the mall, the Mall of America security has been increased. A video released by al-Shabaab named other malls throughout the world that they were planning on attacking.

Luckily, mall-goers have nothing to worry about with the threat. The security at the Mall of America is working with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to monitor the threat to ensure everyone is able to safely enjoy the busiest shopping time of the season.

According to mall officials, some of the increased security measures will be noticeable to guests, while others will be hidden from view. The mall already has industry leading security processes in place, including K-9 units, security training, crisis planning, specialty teams, and lockdown drills.

All of us at Mayer Insurance in Apple Valley, Minnesota would like to remind you to stay safe this holiday season while enjoying the time off with your friends and family!
