This is the June 26, 2018 hearing on "United States Capitol Police: Operations and Workforce," held before House of Representatives Committee on House Administration. From the opening statement Gregg Harper: "When Congress moved from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in 1800, one man was hired to protect the U.S. Capitol Building. Nearly 30 years later, in 1828, the U.S. Capitol Police was born. Now in its 190th year, the USCP employs more than 2,200 officers and civilians, protects approximately 16 million square feet of Capitol buildings and grounds, and manages a budget north of $400 million. The USCP plays a crucial role in protecting the legislative branch. The USCP's mission is to protect the Congress, its Members, employees, visitors, and the facilities so that Congress may fulfill its constitutional and legislative responsibilities in a safe, secure, and open environment to the people the institution serves. And we know that this is no small or easy task. The shooting incident that took place 1 year ago on the baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, reminded us all of the ever-growing challenges faced by law enforcement in this country and around the world." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: None.
