No Major Security Changes for Ill. Inauguration

January 09, 2011

Illinois State Police plan to beef up security a bit when Gov. Pat Quinn and other state officials are sworn into office.

Spokesman Scott Compton says there won't be any major changes in the aftermath of an Arizona shooting spree that left a member of Congress critically injured.

But Compton says some additional officers will be present for Monday's ceremony. He says they will be visible to the public in an effort to discourage anyone who might be thinking about causing trouble.

Even before the Arizona shooting, Illinois police had plans for protecting officials as they are sworn in and for responding quickly to any threat.
