And the first one is in Florida? Then San Francisco.

And “more to be established”? Roll Eyes

WTF? Isn’t the US Capitol Police’s jurisdiction the several square miles of the actual US CAPITOL in Washington DC?

How is this even legal?

U.S. Capitol Police to open field office in Tampa. Florida is home to ‘potential threats’

This sounds like they are trying to send Trump a message or something…

My guess is they will be deputized as US Marshals.

The Honorable Governor of the Good State of Florida, needs to communicate to these children to stay on their playground.

If the crime falls within their jurisdiction they can go where they need to go to investigate.

An article said majority of the threats emanate from CA and FL. Im sure the local agencies dont like getting work dumped on them from DC.

So, states get to set up “field offices” in DC to investigate corruption?

I forgot that Queen Pelosi lives in San Fran when not at the Swamp. Is she nervous or something? Needs to have extra security near her at home for some reason?

I don't buy this BS at all that "threats" are specifically coming from CA and FL. C'mon now Roll Eyes

There are JTTF's in Tampa and SF. It would be simple enough to give a Capitol Police investigator a seat at the table and call it done. A separate field office makes no sense. I think the media got this wrong, but who knows..

Seems like a job for the already established FBI or U.S. Marshals.

Seems like establishing a field office in San Francisco is merely so she can have additional security on her house.

Capitol Police plan to open field offices outside Washington to track threats to lawmakers

By Luke Broadwater
July 6, 2021

Six months after a mob of supporters of President Donald J. Trump stormed the Capitol, the United States Capitol Police is planning to expand operations outside Washington in an effort to better protect lawmakers, beginning with the opening of field offices in California and Florida.

Tim Barber, a spokesman, said the plan was to open several additional regional offices as the department charged with protecting Congress transforms itself in the aftermath of the attack, which exposed serious deficiencies in the Capitol Police’s gathering and dissemination of intelligence, preparedness and training.

Much like the Secret Service, which has field offices in multiple states and countries, the Capitol Police need to be able to monitor and quickly investigate threats against lawmakers wherever they occur, Mr. Barber said.

Yogananda D. Pittman, the acting chief of force, has testified before Congress that total threats against lawmakers have doubled since 2017, with an “overwhelming majority of suspects residing outside” the capital region.

The announcement came as Capitol Police presented a number of steps the agency has taken since the attack, which left dozens of officers from the department and the District of Columbia police force bloodied and injured. Lawmakers evacuated the Capitol and some cowered inside as the rioters, incensed by Mr. Trump’s lie of a stolen election, tried to stop Congress from formalizing President Biden’s victory.

Some of the rioters hunted members of Congress by name, and in the days before the assault, loyalists of Mr. Trump posted messages on far-right chat websites saying they needed to target lawmakers to force them to overturn the election.

Hours after the attack, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died from a stroke after battling the mob. Officer Howard Liebengood died by suicide not long after, as did a D.C. police officer, Jeffrey Smith.

“We will never forget U.S.C.P. Officers Brian Sicknick and Howie Liebengood, who died after the attack, nor the sacrifices of the nearly 150 law enforcement officers who were injured,” a statement from the Capitol Police said.

The agency said it had instituted better training, purchased more protective equipment and provided more robust mental health services for officers since the attack.

Beat me to it. I already penned a nice, short, email to the governor highlighting that exact position.

Correct. They can travel. They need not reside here.

And we know how trustworthy both the media and the government (is there a difference?) is at this point? Florida is being targeted specifically because of our governor and his potential future aspirations. Screw Pelosi and screw the Capital Keystone Cops. Oh, and screw the media while we're at it.
