While the USCP has an inspector general, he does not make reports public, unlike other
agency watchdogs. His report on Jan. 6 remains secret. Critics say the 193-year-old agency is in dire need of reform. They point out that even the Secret Service complies with FOIA requests and releases reports and audits by its internal watchdog. The Capitol Police, in contrast, won’t even reveal how many sworn officers it has on hand.
