Guarding the U.S. Capitol

The parties may be less lavish and the crowd thinner for Obama's second inauguration, but the security and logistics effort remains enormous. More than 40 federal and state law enforcement, transportation and public service agencies, along with military units, will be deployed for the Jan. 21 public ceremony.
