Michigan activates National Guard to help protect State Capitol

The Michigan State Police Director said law enforcement presence at the state Capitol would be increased and joined by the National Guard ahead of armed protests planned by Trump supporters.

This will be achieved by mobilizing soldiers from across the state who are supplemented by uniformed personnel from the Lansing Police Department, the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan National Guard, to ensure that the large city center is protected from any potential damage. We are prepared for the worst, but we remain hopeful that those who choose to demonstrate at our Capitol will do so peacefully, without violence or destruction of property. “Governor Whitmer, based on a request for support from our local partners, activated elements of the Michigan Army and Air National Guard to declare their active duty to protect the people, facilities and key infrastructure. I will refrain from specifically identifying the participating units, and I will refrain from identifying the number of participating personnel. But I assure you that our response is significant.
