No, 2 Capitol Police official resigns

Chad Thomas, the No. 2 Capitol Police official overseeing most of its uniformed officers, resigned from his position Monday as the department attempts to chart a path forward after the Jan. 6 insurrection, according to congressional and Capitol Police sources.

His departure comes as watchdogs urge the department to shift its posture from that of a police force to more of an intelligence-gathering and protective agency for members of Congress and as rank-and-file officers express frustration with current leadership.

Thomas, a veteran member of the department who first joined the Capitol Police in 1996, served as its assistant chief of police for uniformed operations. He was first appointed to the role in an acting capacity in 2019.

Thomas would be “separating from the Department,” according to a memo from Capitol Police Chief of Staff Salley Wood obtained by POLITICO. Wood thanked him for his service and noted the department's plans “to bring in additional resources to assist with the enhancement of its Uniformed Operations in the coming weeks.”
