Unprecedented inauguration security plans

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Security, always a concern in Washington, will be at unprecedented levels for President Bush's second inauguration Jan. 20 -- possibly including 4,000 troops.

Security planning for the event has been under way for months to protect the president, government officials, visiting heads of state, and citizens attending the inaugural events, the Washington Post reported Sunday.

Security measures -- at least the ones being made public -- will include rooftop snipers, better scanning machines, scores of bomb-sniffing dogs and law enforcement officers augmented by about 2,000 out-of-town police officers. Officials said there will be a police officer posted every six to eight feet along the inauguration parade route and a maritime security force led by the Coast Guard will protect the Potomac and Anacostia rivers.
