1. SOUNDBITE (English) Maj. Christopher West, State Police Troop G commander:
"We're also aware of information that groups have been advocating for armed protest at state capitals nationwide ahead of the inauguration. While there is no credible threat to Albany, we still have taken additional steps to increase security and develop response plans with our partners. Those plans include an increase in the number of state police members deployed in and around the Capitol. The National Guard will also be on standby for a response."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Maj. Christopher West, State Police Troop G commander:
"We have no problem at all with peaceful protests. However, we want to make sure this is clearly understood. Anyone who comes to the Capitol with the intention of causing violence or damage to public property will be arrested. We have zero tolerance for anyone who incites or causes any violence."
