WASHINGTON (AP) — This time, they’ll be ready.

U.S. Secret Service Special Agent in Charge Michael Plati, who is leading the inauguration security, says the two events aren’t comparable from a security standpoint.

The theme for the event will be “America United,” an issue that’s long been a central focus for Biden but one that’s taken on added weight following last Wednesday's insurrection.

Biden himself hasn't expressed concern about his own personal security at the inauguration.
