Miami Beach PD Evaluating Street Security After Barcelona

Miami Beach Police officials are evaluating their security measures on Lincoln Road and other high-volume pedestrian areas in the wake of Thursday’s deadly van attack in Barcelona.

In a statement Friday, Police Chief Daniel Oates said officers are on “appropriate alert” after the attack in Barcelona, which left at least 13 dead and 100 wounded.

“As a matter of policy, we do not discuss specific security measures,” Chief Oates said. “Our officers are on appropriate alert because of the events in Europe.”

Chief Oates said plans have been in the works to permanently upgrade physical security on Lincoln Road and Espanola Way, but they’re also considering interim, temporary measures.
