You may be aware of a recent propaganda video that mentions Mall of America, among other malls. We’ve worked extensively with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to determine that there is no credible threat associated with our property. Safety of our guests, tenants and employees remains our top priority, and we will continue to work with law enforcement at all levels to evaluate this and other information as it becomes available.
We take all security concerns seriously and have responded appropriately. Enhanced security measures have been implemented, and will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Some of them will be visible to you, our shopper, and others will not.
Mall of America remains a very safe place and employs an extensive, well-trained professional security force that patrols and monitors activity with a 24-hour presence. Bloomington Police have a permanent presence with dedicated, full-time staffing at Mall of America. Additionally, several other law enforcement agencies maintain a high visibility in and around the property.
