Senate Unanimously Approves Congressional Gold Medals For Police Who Protected Capitol During Riot

Roll Call reports:

Legislation to honor the Capitol Police and Washington D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department with congressional gold medals — recognizing them for their heroism in protecting members of Congress from rioters loyal to then-President Donald Trump on Jan. 6 — is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk for his signature.

The Senate passed, by unanimous consent, a bill that would provide four congressional gold medals to the Capitol Police and those who protected the Capitol during the attack. The medals will be displayed at the Capitol Police headquarters, Metropolitan Police Department headquarters, the Smithsonian Institution and the Capitol.
