Keeping the Peace

You may see a Capitol Police officer at committee meetings, commission hearings or at protests, rallies, or demonstrations. Our mission is to maintain order and insure the safety of all participants and the public. Many times, a police presence is enough to help keep tempers in check, but if the situation threatens to become violent, an officer can request that the offender(s) remove themselves from the scene. A trespass notice that prohibits the person from being in that specific place can be served on the subject(s), if necessary to keep the peace.
