Security measures are being increased by the state and local law enforcement at the state Capitol building.
The FBI agency earlier this week had warned of armed protests at all 50 state capitals in preparation of Wednesday’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
“I think the most important thing we learned about the events on January 6th at our nation’s capital is they thought that they had it under control and they didn’t reach out and accept help from other law enforcement jurisdictions,” said Hawaii State Senate President Ron Kouchi.
Jan. 20 isn’t just inauguration day. Its also the first day of the new legislative session for Hawaii.
According to law enforcement leaders, there have been no credible threats to the Hawaii state Capitol or any other government buildings in Hawaii.
