Multiple law enforcement agencies in South Carolina are working in collaboration to ensure safety and security at the State house following a warning issued by the FBI about armed protests.

The Columbia Police Department, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, and Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin held a briefing Friday where they gave further details of that plan.

The South Carolina Department of Public Safety and State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) are working with those agencies for the safety and security of the South Carolina State House and other facilities after the FBI issued a warning about potential armed protests at the U.S. Capitol and State Capitols leading up to the Inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20, 2021.
