Columbia, South Carolina (WCBD) – The South Carolina Guard will be stationed in Washington, DC to provide security for the 59th Presidential Inauguration Ceremony next week.
They join National Guard soldiers from several states of the capital, as they did at past inauguration.
“This is the same support that South Carolina National Guard service members have provided for the first event in the past to support the District of Columbia National Guard and the capital’s local law enforcement agency,” said Jessica Donnelly, spokeswoman SC National Guard.
Although missions in Washington, DC have not yet been assigned, National Guard support includes traffic control points, security checkpoint placement, staff flow management, and spectators before, during, and inauguration. After the ceremony.
Whenever the National Guard is invoked, whether in South Carolina or Washington, DC, authorities say it’s always in support.
“The South Carolina Guard is working to support the District of Columbia National Guard, which is working to support local private authorities,” they say.
On Thursday morning, several buses departed from Mount Pleasant’s National Guard Armory and transported South Carolina National Guard crew to Washington.
He has not received a request for assistance from the State Capitol of Colombia.
“If the need is determined, South Carolina National Guard will carry out state missions in support of the Governor’s instructions and private law enforcement agencies,” said Donnelly. “If requested, South Carolina National Guard is trained and ready to assist private law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety, security and well-being of the state and its citizens.”
Thousands of National Guards have been deployed to the Washington, DC area to support inauguration and security since January 6.th Riot at Capitol Hill.
