SWAT Team Takes Over Part of the Campus Today

Oh what fun.

University of Miami Police, in conjunction with the City of Coral Gables Police Department, will hold an all-day training exercise on the northeast section of UM's Coral Gables campus from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 28. The exercise will involve mock explosions, helicopters, SWAT teams, and multiple response teams from most local municipalities, which are expected to send teams to participate. In addition, Doctors Hospital will participate in the exercise by offering simulated on-site medical assistance to actors posing as victims.

Access to Mahoney/Pearson Residential College will be limited to authorized personnel only on the day of the mock exercise. If you must be on campus in the vicinity of this mock exercise-which will take place between Stanford Drive and Granada Boulevard and from Ponce de Leon Boulevard to Campo Sano Avenue-please display your 'Cane Card. If you must enter this area, you will be asked to furnish UM-issued identification.
