January 19, 2021 ( PITTSBURGH, PA) -- In light of the January 6 protest that devolved into a deadly riot inside the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., towns and cities around the country have been taking proactive security measures ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20, 2021.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, in close partnership with its local and federal law enforcement partners, has been utilizing all intelligence-gathering methods in an effort to protect Pittsburgh's residents and critical infrastructure.

However, it is important for the public to know that to date there have been no credible threats to the City or its residents.

Police remain vigilant and the daily flow of information between the Bureau and its partners will ensure that all levels of law enforcement are prepared for multiple contingencies.

Pittsburgh Public Safety urges all residents to report any suspicious activity by calling 9-1-1 in an effort to help keep Pittsburgh safe not only this week, but at all times.
