WASHINGTON – It takes planning, preparation, partnerships and flawless
execution to make a National Special Security Event (NSSE) demeanour easy, and as it
turns out the U.S. Secret Service specializes in occasions like that, such as the State
of the Union Address (SOTU) on Jan 30, 2018.
Long after President Donald Trump leaves the theatre and the eventuality wraps
up, partial of the Secret Service’s success will be tangible by how the open focuses
on the President’s summary rather than eventuality security. As Henry David Thorough
once said, “It’s not what you demeanour at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Event confidence will embody copiousness to demeanour at, but even some-more that won’t be
seen. The Secret Service’s categorical partners in this eventuality are the U.S. Capitol Police,
Metropolitan Police Department, and the U.S. Park Police. But many more
agencies will be participating or at the ready, if needed.
“To secure a NSSE, we rest heavily on the team-work and communication
with over 20 of the local, state, and sovereign law coercion and open safety
partners in the National Capital Region,” pronounced Special Agent in Charge Robert
O’Donnell, U.S. Secret Service – Dignitary Protection Division. “It takes months of
preparation and involves all from determining and monitoring the airspace
to traffic and throng control. The idea is to create a protected and secure environment
for the protectees, other dignitaries and the public.”
Part of the credentials will be to promulgate with the open both before
and during the event. The open will be wakeful of highway closures and the Secret
Service will margin questions from the media per eventuality security.
