COPS Office to Conduct After-Action Review of Police Response to Orlando Nightclub Mass Shooting

The Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) today announced it will conduct a comprehensive after-action assessment of the Orlando Police Department’s (OPD) response to the mass shooting that took place on June 12 at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Statement from U.S. Attorney Bentley:

“Chief Mina has proven to be a tremendous leader of the Orlando Police Department. His decision to seek an independent review of the law enforcement response to the Pulse nightclub shootings is another example of his effective leadership. The results of this review should help not only the Orlando Police Department, but also other law enforcement agencies forced to deal with terrorist attacks.”
