Federal authorities are set to boost a number of safety measures at the White House in order to secure the premises and its occupants should civil unrest explode on election night this Tuesday evening and possibly beyond.
One of the new measures being put in place is a “non-scalable” fence around the outside perimeter of the White House. This structure is similar to one that was put up in June during riots and looting that was connected with the death of George Floyd while he was in police custody.
Federal authorities have been preparing for the possibility of unrest following the election for months, CNN previously reported. There have been more than 60 meetings since January between the White House National Security Council, the Office of Personnel Management, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the various intelligence agencies, and the military in an effort to prepare for any possible election outcome.
“If there’s no winner, you will see significant deployments of officers at all levels across the capital,” said Patrick Burke, executive director of the Washington, D.C., Police Foundation. “Officers will get cancellations of days off, extensions of shifts and full deployments of officers across the city.”
The White House is not the only place in Washington, D.C., that is preparing for a volatile election night and subsequent fallout. Last month, Washington, D.C., Metro Police Chief Peter Newsham warned the District’s City Council that there will likely be unrest surrounding the election. Many businesses in close proximity to the White House have boarded up their windows in preparation.

Be sure to vote and stay safe.
