Pete Eliadis, a man with nearly 30 years in law enforcement, is questioning the preparation and response by U.S. Capitol Police to mob attack
WASHINGTON — Wednesday’s attack on the U.S. Capitol left four dead, at least 14 officers injured, and more than 60 rioters were arrested. The day’s events left the country both shocked and saddened and also raised questions about the overall response from U.S. Capitol Police.
“This was an unfortunate incident not just for the Capital region, but more for the country on an international platform,” Pete Eliadis, CEO of Intelligence Consulting Partners, said. “I think at the top level, you’re going to see a lot of changes occurring very much immediately. I think you’re going to see second reviews of policy and executable procedures. Hours after our interview with Eliadis, U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund submitted his resignation.
Eliadis, with nearly 30 years in law enforcement, has been in the room when post-mortems on tragic events involving law enforcement are assessed. He said everything from the beginning of the event to the end will be scrutinized critically.
