The Capitol Building had a few visitors yesterday.
Several low flying helicopters landed on the grounds of the Capitol Building in a drill that was reported to be orchestrated by the Capitol Police and other Federal officers.
Before the exercise was launched the Capitol Police Department sent out a tweet that stated “Monday morning, June 7, we will be working with our federal, state, and local partners on a routine training exercise on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol”.
The exercise started off with K-9 units being deployed, followed by EMTs , specialized police, a bomb squad unit, actors, and last but not least several Blackhawk helicopters.
Several Capitol Police officers went on record to say that the last time they saw an exercise as big as this was a few days after 911.
