The U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) became aware today of a video posted online showing an interaction between a Special Agent from our Dignitary Protection Division, and an unknown individual with no observable credentials approaching a Senator. The individual subsequently identified himself by name. Our Special Agent is a member of a leadership team assigned to provide security and protection to a Senator.

In accordance with applicable training when encountering an unidentified individual in close proximity to a protectee who is encroaching on the protectee's zone of security, the Special Agent is expected to take proactive measures to maintain the security and protection of their protectee.

It is the goal of the USCP to be professional at all times, and we will continue to always strive to maintain our high standards of professionalism as law enforcement officers.
