Six Capitol police officers were suspended and 29 are under investigation for alleged roles in the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
This comes after acting Chief Yogananda Pittman said last month that the department “has been actively reviewing video and other open source materials of some USCP officers and officials that appear to be in violation of Department regulations and policies.”
It’s not clear what the suspended officers are accused of, but a spokesperson said any behavior “not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline.”
Last month, two officers were suspended for their conduct during the insurrection. One took a selfie with a rioter, while another wore a Make America Great Again hat and directed people around the Capitol.
