|Subject:||Resolution Honoring the Capitol Police|
|Given the course of recent events, members of the Capitol Police answered the call to protect the legislators, executive branch officials and staff within the Capitol Complex. Not only did these brave men and women protect our sacred Capitol, but were also ready to lay down their lives in defense of the country. Because of those who chose to defend the seat of American democracy, I believe it is appropriate and fitting to honor the men and women of our Capitol Police and House Security. These public servants protect legislators and their staff and the thousands of visitors who stream through the Capitol on an average day, but also protect the spiritual home of America's and Pennsylvania’s democratic way of life.
On January 6, 2021, our Nation’s Capitol came under attack, with the intent on undoing nearly 250 years of American greatness and exceptionalism. The men and women of the Capitol Police who answered the call to action and successfully defended her, but not without sustaining injuries and, unfortunately death. Our Capitol Police and House Security protect all of us, our staff, and the employees of our Capitol with the same level of professionalism and duty to the Commonwealth.
