Channel 11 News reporter Alan Jennings confirmed that a contingent of 2,000 soldiers, mostly made up of the 2nd Brigade combat team of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and the Pennsylvania Air National Guard, will hit the streets during G-20 to augment the 4,000-officer police force.

 “At this point we’re looking at a battalion sized joint task force,” said Lt. Col. Don Accamando, spokesman for the Pennsylvania National Guard.

 The Guard will be providing assistance with crowd control, traffic, defensive terrorist tactics, and equipment to sense biological and chemical weapons.

 “There are an array of skills that we do bring to the table … extraction capability if we got into consequence management, we’d be able to respond as well there,” said Accamando. Channel 11 News reporter Alan Jennings confirmed that a contingent of 2,000 soldiers, mostly made up of the 2nd Brigade combat team of the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and the Pennsylvania Air National Guard, will hit the streets during G-20 to augment the 4,000-officer police force.
