Despite the oft-violent protests that marred Friday's inauguration of President Donald Trump, the security protocols put in place kept D.C. safe and rebuffed any chance of a terrorist attack, Politico reported.

In addition to the nearly 30K security personnel from several different agencies, Department of Homeland Security heeded lessons from around the world in insulating the inauguration:

  • Miles of Jersey barriers, dumpsters and construction equipment fortified the area to prevent trucks from penetrating areas where hundreds of thousands of people were congregated, Politico reported.
  • Flight restrictions were in place for 10 hours.
  • Metal detectors and bag checks were part of standard protocol for those in attendance.

Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson had said there was no credible threat against Trump or the inauguration, but he and the other agencies were taking no chances, especially with fears of a "lone wolf" attack.
