The US presidential inauguration 2017 will take place this weekend and it’s one of the most controversial in a number of years. This past election cycle and subsequent election of Donald Trump as US President has been hotly debated and protested against for many months now. All this will come to a head this weekend as Donald Trump is sworn in as America’s 45th President.
Around 900,000 or more people are expected at the parade / inauguration 2017 ceremonies in Washington DC. Naturally, this highly-public event, with many political leaders attending, is a huge security concern. The presidential inauguration 2017 has been deemed a “National Special Security Event” (NSSE), a special designation that gets extra resources and leadership by the Secret Service for the event security.
Details about Security for Donald Trump’s Inauguration 2017
Planning for inauguration 2017 has been in the works for more than a year. Security experts even sent personnel to study the Democratic / Republican National Conventions to see how security measures were handled there. Roads surrounding the event route have been limited to little or no traffic. Hospitals are prepared for the worst and security officials will be monitoring the land, air and waters around the parade route and Capitol Building. The subway systems have been prepared to handle additional traffic during the weekend’s events, which include a large protest on Saturday.
Protest Events and Security Measures
This inauguration 2017 weekend will also bear witness to many protest gatherings in Washington DC itself as well as around the country and world. Groups will be and have already begun protesting and more are expected to protest in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and others. Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington is expected to have 200,000 in attendance, so security will remain high all weekend.
