  Mrs. MILLER of Michigan. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 
efforts of the United States Capitol Police. Congress is a very unique 
place that presents special challenges for a law enforcement agency, 
yet every day, the men and women of the Capitol Police work tirelessly 
to protect this institution. Their coordination, guidance, and support 
ensures that Members and Staff can fulfill the legislative 
responsibilities of Congress, all while securing the Capitol Hill 
campus so our constituents can visit and see first-hand how the 
legislative branch functions.
  Specifically, I also want to note the excellent job done by the 
Capitol Police during the New Member Orientation program held last 
November for the incoming Members of Congress. The Orientation program 
is a significant effort that requires extensive coordination and 
communication, but the Capitol Police's work in providing security at 
the hotel and for all of the events was critical to the success and 
productivity of the week. I am very grateful for all they did to help 
with the program.
  The officers and civilians within the force continually display 
professionalism and excellence in carrying out their duties, and I 
thank them for all their hard work.
