Troopers with Utah Highway Patrol are doing their part to make sure everyone is safe at the inauguration Friday.
Keeping the area secure will require the help of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the country, 40 from Utah.
The nation’s top security experts have been working overtime to prepare. The Department of Homeland Security estimates 28,000 men and women from multiple departments, including the FBI.
Local historian and Vice Chair of Trump for Utah, Ron Fox, talks about this monumental undertaking.
“There are thousands and thousands of military and police that come to assist. Utah has 40 highway patrolmen who will be back there moving traffic or providing security along the parade route.”
With just 24 hours out, many of the security measure are in place. Chief Political Correspondent Glen Mills is in Washington D.C. and will provide live reports leading up to the inauguration.
