Tulsa, Oklahoma — As the inauguration approaches, law enforcement agencies across the country are being notified to prepare for public unrest. The warning came from the FBI. Authorities advised local police to monitor potential protests in government buildings.
The advice does not necessarily mean that violence will occur in the event of a protest. Authorities want local police to prepare for what happened in the Capitol to never happen again.
“I have witnessed more and more civil anxiety in my life than I have seen,” said retired police officer Andrew Scott, who has 30 years of law enforcement experience.
Scott and many others want no repetitive attacks.
“I don’t think there will be any major turmoil among national citizens on the premise of President Biden’s inauguration,” Scott said. But he does not downplay the possibility that people will confuse future protests that begin peacefully.
The National Guard continues to move to Washington, DC to support the inauguration, but is currently not tracking anything needed for a military show of force in Oklahoma.
The director of media operations at the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said they are continuing to monitor and have additional personnel available. State agencies are also working with the Governor’s Office on safety and security.
“The Oklahoma Highway Patrol closely monitors national and state activities, including the protection of government facilities. We continue to work with the Governor’s Office, House of Representatives and Senate leaders to elect national, state officials, and elections. Officials, and Government Facilities. Whenever there is a large planned event in the House of Representatives, we are ready with additional personnel. “

The Governor’s Master of Corporate Communication said they were monitoring and taking appropriate action.
“We monitor the situation and take appropriate action. The Governor consistently supports the right to peaceful demonstrations, but there is no place for violence or property damage. We are public. We protect the rights of Oklahoman while maintaining safety. ”
