Other areas identified by smaller numbers of security directors included training in weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) and evacuation procedures. the directors most commonly cited working with first responders (46%). while slightly more than half required drug tests as well (see Table 7). or state/county officials) together conducted training at 17% of the sites (see Table 1 in Appendix A for further detail). and 34% indicated identifying terrorists (see Table 8). just over half (52%) of the security directors responded affirmatively.

But about half (49%) of the respondents said that their staff were instructed to be on the lookout for unusual behavior or dress of mall clients. suspicious clothing (extra bulky). One in four said that they had specific performance measures to define whether they were meeting those goals. and most of these did so only occasionally.
