Security is Tight at the Indiana State Capitol Building as Nation Prepares to Swear in President Biden


STATEHOUSE -- Security is tight at potential targets in Indiana and across the country this morning, ahead of today’s Inaugural events in the Nation’s Capital.

The FBI has warned officials in all 50 states and the District of Columbia that violence is possible today, especially at state capitol buildings and the U.S. Capitol in Washington.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter says  the state is "well positioned" to handle potential unrest amid reports that armed protesters are planning to march on statehouses across the country ahead of today's inauguration. 

Governor Holcomb has closed the Indiana Statehouse complex again today.  He has released the following statement... 

“The safety and security of our state employees and the Hoosiers who use our state services are always top of mind.

After an evaluation with public safety leaders, we have decided to err on the side of caution and close the state government complex to the public.

Hoosiers will still be able to access essential state services online, on the phone, or in-person at branches around the state.”
