DICJ considers yearly attack drills

The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau is considering holding an annual armed attack drill to test the ability for public-sector departments and the local casino industry to coordinate and respond to major incidents.

The announcement came after the simulation drill dubbed “Wolf Hunting 2019” was concluded at the Venetian Macao on Friday.

Around 360 people attended the 90-minute drill, which involved six actors posing as criminals attacking some patrons before escaping the hotel lobby.

In a statement, the police said that the drill included simulations of multiple injuries, a bomb threat, people being held hostage and standoffs between the police and the criminals.
