Law enforcement ramps up security efforts ahead of 1-year anniversary of Capitol attack

As we approach the one year anniversary of what is known as the insurrection at the capital on January 6th of last year. Law enforcement and federal authorities in the Washington area are beefing up security in anticipation of any possible threats of domestic terrorism.

According to a federal law enforcement official the Department of Homeland Security is coordinating with the FBI, the Metropolitan Police Department, US Park Police and Capitol Police to ensure that adequate personnel and physical security measures are in place. The US Secret Service and Federal Protective Service also have deployment plans if needed.
Homeland Security Secretary told reporters “The threat of domestic violent extremists is a very great one.”

The US Capitol Police Chief  meanwhile is very confident that the department would be capable of fending off another mob-like attack saying the “United States Capitol Police as an organization is stronger and better prepared to carry out its mission today than it was before January 6th of last year.”
Hopefully no one is crazy enough to try something this year.
