This is the January 5, 2022 hearing on "Oversight of the United States Capitol Police Following the January 6th Attack on the Capitol, Part III," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. From the opening statement of Roy Blunt:"My colleagues and I are profoundly grateful for the Capitol Police's continued dedication to the mission to protect the Congress. It is our job to honor their service by doing our part to ensure that they are never faced with the circumstances they were faced with that day [January 6th]. [...] I appreciate today's opportunity to hear from Chief Manger on the security enhancements the Department has made over the past year, the work being done to improve officer morale and retention, as well as the Chief's observations after six months in command, and his goals and visions for the Department moving forward. One year after January 6, 2021, we acknowledge that there have been--there has been considerable progress, but also acknowledge, and I am sure the Chief does from his comments today, that much work remains to be done. We will continue to work together to ensure the Department addresses its critical needs and is positioned to be better trained, better equipped, and better prepared in the future. We owe that to the front line United States Capitol Police officers who protect Members of Congress, congressional officers, employees, and visitors to the Capitol every day. We also, by the way, owe that to their families. Chief Manger, thank you for being here with us today. I look forward to hearing from you as you reflect on the changes the Department has made over the past year and what work remains to be done." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: J. Thomas Manger.
