EXECUTIVE PROTECTION & TRANSPORTATION CASE STUDY: MEMBERS OF CONGRESS THREATENED AFTER VIOLENT ATTACKS AT THE CAPITOL
INCIDENT: Members of Congress threatened due to January 6 violent attacks at the US Capitol Building
LOCATION: Washington D.C. - United States
SERVICE: Executive Protection, Secure Transportation, Intelligence, and Threat Management
SITUATION: After the violent attacks at the US Capitol on 6, January 2021, a state of emergency was declared in the Washington D.C. area with 6,200 National Guard personnel from D.C., VA, and MD deployed to maintain order. Because of this incident, there was not enough Capitol Police capacity to provide executive protection for members of Congress who continued to be threatened after the incident. From protesters heckling outside of their homes to threats surfacing online, individuals needed additional security support.
RESPONSE: Global Guardian was contacted by several members of Congress to establish executive protection for themselves and their families. In addition to placing static guards at the homes of the Congressmen and Congresswomen, Global Guardian’s Special Operations team dispatched security agents to be with each individual 24 hours a day. Global Guardian also provided detailed intelligence reports specific to each individual while monitoring online threats directed at them or their families. The Global Guardian team also coordinated transportation into Capitol Hill to ensure a smooth and safe commute.
