Help Duties Summary

The United States Capitol Police (USCP) is a CALEA nationally-accredited, federal law enforcement agency. The USCP safeguards the Congress, Members of Congress, employees, visitors, and Congressional buildings and grounds from crime, disruption, and terrorism. We protect and secure Congress so it can fulfill its constitutional and legislative responsibilities in a safe, secure and open environment.

We protect the legislative process, the symbol of our democracy, the people who carry out the process, and the millions of visitors who travel here to see democracy in action. We also protect everyone who visits the Capitol, who can see first-hand how we work to represent the best of America's spirit and diversity.

As a Department, we represent many races, colors, religions, national origins, political affiliations, sexual orientations, and ages. Our workforce is comprised of employees from nearly all 50 states and the U.S. territories. We embrace and celebrate a diverse workforce, and we believe inclusion makes our workplace stronger and respecting each individual as a person and as a professional is essential.

We act on the world stage every day of the year as a model in security, urban crime prevention, dignitary protection, specialty response capabilities, and homeland security. As ambassadors of the Congress, we are often the first face that visitors and employees encounter, and we leave a lasting impression that is reflective of the Legislative Branch and its role in America's democracy.
