(Washington, D.C.) – On Friday, Jan. 15, public information offices from across government representing numerous public safety and law enforcement entities at the federal, state and local levels began full virtual staffing of the National Special Security Event Joint Information Center (NSSE JIC) in support of the 59th Presidential Inauguration. In 2018, the Secretary of Homeland Security designated the Presidential Inauguration as a recurring NSSE.

Initial NSSE JIC stand-up operations and staffing began on Jan. 13 to coordinate communication across the supporting entities. It will serve as the primary response center for media requesting security information.

The NSSE JIC will be staffed by a public affairs representative from many of the agencies participating in the design and implementation of the inaugural security plan. The public affairs representatives will ensure consistent messaging to the media and the public.
