Head of US Capitol Police to Step Down in January

Monday, 03 Aug 2015 08:01 PM

The chief of the U.S. Capitol Police is planning to retire in January.

In a statement late Monday, the U.S. Capitol Police Board said Kim Dine would step down and thanked him for his leadership after more than 2½ years.

The Capitol Police are responsible for providing security for lawmakers, staff and visitors to the Capitol. They also police the Capitol grounds and the surrounding area.

Dine faced tough questions from lawmakers in May after officers accidentally left their guns in the Capitol's public bathrooms three times this year. One gun was found by a child. Dine said officers were receiving additional training.

In a separate incident, a protester flew a small gyrocopter onto the grounds of the Capitol in April.
