President Barack Obama’s administration has used its security detail in several high-profile incidents, including the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
In a series of tweets, the White House released its own description of its security policy for the president, which outlines its security measures and provides a timeline for the changes.
It also provides a list of security-related issues that are considered to be “critical.”
The White House also provides the names of the officials who have been authorized to be in the president’s personal security detail.
“The President is not required to wear a body camera in public and has no expectation of privacy in his personal residence,” the description reads.
“No official or group of officials, including his family, will be able to view or take photos of the President or other public areas of the White Houses residence.”
The descriptions of the policies can be found in several sections of the Office of the Presidency’s Office of Public Affairs.
The first section, “Protection of the Presidential Residence,” is for the “safety and security of the president and his family,” and it includes “no photography of the premises, including in the presence of family members.”
The section is also detailed for any “person in the executive branch, including family members, who is outside the executive mansion and who is not authorized to enter or leave the residence.”
There are also two sections for “Security of the National Archives and Records Administration.”
One, for the National Security Council, describes the policy “to ensure that the security of all personnel of the NSC and its offices is maintained and that the President is protected in all circumstances.”
“The NSC Security Team will ensure that all staff are protected and the President’s staff is secured,” it reads.
The second section, for “National Archives and Archives Management,” includes “protection of any records stored on the National Archive and Archives in the protection of all records and archives,” including “any personnel, documents, files, equipment, and information stored on such records and Archives and the protection and security and confidentiality of such records, records, files and information.”
The third section, the Office for Public Affairs, details the policies for the Office, “Department of Energy.”
The policy states, “All employees and contractors will be subject to the policy on the use of personal protective equipment for their personal security purposes.”
It says, “The Department of Energy has been instructed by the Secret Service to use body cameras, facial recognition technology and other technology, such as iris scans and other sensors, when on the premises.”
The policies are available for viewing in the White, Executive, Office of White House Correspondents, White House Press Briefing Room, and the White.gov website.
