As the January 20 Presidential inauguration date approaches, the FBI has warned state officials of widespread protests in every state in the U.S. As a result, the Louisiana State Police are aware and are preparing for planned protests later this week.

KLFY reports State police have been notified of planned protests at not only the State Capitol, but the Governors Mansion as well, beginning later this week and lasting through the upcoming weekend.

In a statement provided to WAFB, the Louisiana State Police say “In coordination with Capitol staff and the Department of Public Safety Police, LSP will have personnel in place to ensure a safe environment and to protect the rights of our citizens to hold a peaceful gathering”.

Many of the details outlining the full extent of security measures in place are obviously not being divulged other than LSP's statement above.
