Statement: USCP Chief Tom Manger’s Message to the Community

February 27, 2022
Press Release

Our Department’s mission to protect the United States Congress, the Capitol, and the legislative process remains unwavering.  In light of the upcoming State of the Union Address, and the possibility of demonstrations in the next couple of weeks, we have been working closely with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners on a security plan to prevent any disruption to the important work of Congress. Out of an abundance of caution, and in conjunction with the United States Secret Service, a plan has been approved to put up the inner-perimeter fence around the Capitol building for the State of the Union Address. I have also requested support from outside law enforcement agencies as well as the National Guard to assist with our security precautions. We will continue to update the community about any information that may impact the roads around Capitol Hill.” – United States Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger
