DCNR Rangers Answered The Call To Help Protect PA Capitol Buildings

Almost since the outset of the pandemic in late March, DCNR’s headquarters-- the Rachel Carson State Office Building-- has been largely unoccupied. That changed in the wake of the January 6 protesters’ attack on the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Following that uprising, Pennsylvania’s Capitol Police moved to address several non-specific threats of demonstrations and or protests at capitals in all 50 states.

Capitol Police is the agency responsible for protecting our state capitol building, as well as other state office buildings within the Capitol campus.

Leadership from DCNR, in cooperation with the Capitol Police, provided eight DCNR Rangers-- divided into two four-person teams-- to provide several days of security at the Rachel Carson state office building and another nearby state office building.

As they do each and every day, DCNR’s Rangers answered the call.
