Governor Kemp, standing alongside Georgia’s top public safety leaders, announced Georgia's Capitol security teams are prepared for any possible protests in the works this month.
Georgia State Patrol cars parked on top of the front steps of the State Capitol Tuesday guarding the doors.
"We are well-postured and well prepared to handle anything that may come in our direction," said Colonel Chris Wright, Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, who stood alongside General Tom Carden, the adjunct General of Geogia's Department of Defense.
Guards, heavily armed with assault rifles, stood watch over the entrances of the building.
"I think our threat level that we are seeing and hearing in regards to the Georgia State Capitol seems to be very low at this point in time, but we are taking nothing for granted," Kemp said in a Tuesday press conference. "I think we see what happens when you do that looking back to last week," he added.
