Orlando Police Chief Chief John W. Mina asked the US Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) to conduct an independent critical incident review of the OPD’s response to the attack to identify best practices and lessons learned to improve the department’s planning, training, policies, procedures, and practices regarding events of this nature and magnitude. This review also provides lessons for law enforcement and public safety agencies across the nation as they prepare to face increasing acts of mass public violence and the growing threat of terrorism.
