Secret Service Prepares for Inauguration Following Multiple Threats


Following recent terror attacks abroad and public threats here in the U.S., Secret Service is taking extra steps to ensure the safety of the President-elect and the public during this week’s Inauguration.

Scarlett Fahkar reports about what steps are being taken by the Secret Service.

The Hill reports Secret Service Director, Joseph Clancy, went to the extent of walking door-to-door with his agents, “knocking on the doors to each building and office,” according to Clancy.

“I think people today are willing to do things they may not have been willing to do in the past,” Clancy told WTOP-FM.

Two recent terror attacks in Europe killed over a dozen people after trucks drove into large crowds of people.  According to The Hill, the Secret Service is going to use “soft and hard” methods to prevent such an attack from happening.

Still, Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, said there is always a concern for a new method of attack. “Every night I wake up and I wonder do we have some issue covered.”
