Gov. Tom Wolf says 450 Pa. National Guard members put on active duty

Gov. Tom Wolf said Thursday 450 Pennsylvania National Guard members have been placed on active duty around the state to bolster security efforts in the wake of the attack at the U.S. Capitol last week.

Wolf said the mobilization of the guard troops will coincide with heightened security measures leading up to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. More than 1,000 Pennsylvania National Guard troops have already deployed to Washington, D.C. to aid local authorities in security efforts for the inauguration.
