U.S. Capitol Police: Past, Present and Future Panel Discussion Set for Friday

The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has thrust the U.S. Capitol Police into the spotlight. They failed to adequately protect lawmakers, staff, essential workers, and journalists against a mob-led insurrection, despite an abundance of resources. 

Demand Progress and the Article One Coalition are hosting a webinar with congressional experts who have covered USCP for years to discuss its opaque history and how Congress must reform the USCP. 

Panelists include:

  • Daniel Schuman, policy director for Demand Progress, the only organization that has spent years looking into the budget and operations of the USCP.
  • Nicole Tisdale, Founder and Principal for Advocacy Blueprints, who spent 10 years on the House Committee on Homeland Security.
  • Chris Marquette, moderator, an congressional ethics and leadership reporter for Roll Call and the lead beat writer on the USCP. 

The conversation will take place Friday at 2pm E.T. RSVP to the free webinar here.
