Greensboro, N.C. - Washington, D.C. called and Greensboro answered. Forty Greensboro Police Officers will provide security at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration.
The Washington, D.C. Police Department selected GPD to participate. Roughly twenty-five hundred officers from across the nation will be involved. GPD officers will focus on crowd control and keeping the route clear of trouble during the parade.
"The community as whole should be proud of their police department. Out of all the agencies across the country, the city of Greensboro was selected to be an active participant in the inauguration," Officer M.J. Maul said.
Officer Maul has worked at the previous two inaugurations and is looking forward to the event. Officer Maul says the Charlotte police department and the North Carolina Highway Patrol are the only other agencies from our state heading to D.C.
Officer T.V. Moore has been in Washington, D.C. for several weeks now. He's working on a different mission during the inauguration as a U.S. Navy Reservist.
