Out-of-town cops being sworn in for inauguration

The officers will be sworn in as deputy U.S. marshals during a training session Sunday at American University

WASHINGTON — Thousands of police officers from around the country are being sworn in ahead of Monday's presidential inauguration.

The officers will be sworn in as deputy U.S. marshals during a training session Sunday at American University. The oath, administered by the U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia, authorizes them to work security for the event.

Authorities haven't revealed the precise number of law enforcement officers working Monday, but a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman says about 2,600 officers have arrived in Washington from out of town. That will supplement the department's roughly 3,800 officers, as well as agents from the Secret Service, the FBI and other agencies.
