Inauguration Security to be Highest Ever

This year’s inauguration is expected to set many records – from the largest crowds, to most bridges closed to the highest security of any president’s swearing-in.

The inauguration is considered a National Special Security Event, a federal designation that puts the Secret Service in charge of security for the entire day. But this year the special security tag has been extended to four days, starting when President-elect Barack Obama starts making his way to Washington from Philadelphia on Amtrak this Saturday.

“It will be the most security, as far as I’m aware, that any inauguration’s had,” Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said in a recent interview with The Associated Press. More from Officer.com

It is going to be a mess up there.  Plan your loads and trips accordingly.   We’ll post alerts and news as it becomes available.
