SPRINGFIELD – Illinois State Police (ISP) are tracking possible events at the Illinois capitol this weekend.
The FBI has issued warnings about potential armed protests at all 50 of the nation’s capitols. Gov. JB Pritzker said he can’t discuss the specifics of security precautions being taken, but that ISP is well aware of the situation.
State police said they will work with local law enforcement and have all available resources at their disposal.
The FBI said protests may be held in the days leading up to the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden.
