Oversight of the United States Capitol Police: Hearing Before the Committee on House Administration, House of Representatives, One Hundred Sixteenth Congress, First Session, July 16, 2019   [open pdf - 5MB]

This is the July 16, 2019 hearing on "Oversight of the United States Capitol Police," held before the U.S. House Committee on House Administration. From the Opening Statement of Zoe Lofgren: "The officers of today's Capitol Police have something in common with the first four members of the force back in 1828: a noble commitment to public service that could, in the blink of an eye, entail putting their lives on the line to protect others. But the 1,918 sworn officers and 366 civilian employees of today's force operate in a vastly different world with threats and challenges that sometimes seem to change by the day. This Committee's job is to ensure that the Department, like any other legislative branch agency, successfully executes its core mission in a complex and changing world. [...] The Committee's oversight includes ensuring the United States Capitol Police continue to critically review its policing practices to ensure those practices evolve and are refined based on best practices and new information. We want to make sure the Department is focused on its core mission, protecting Congress, and has enough resources to do so." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul D. Irving, Steven A. Sund, Michael A. Bolton, and Gus Papathanasiou.
