The union representing officers with the US Capitol Police (USCP) has called for a congressional inquiry into the decision to pull a Swat team from the scene of a mass shooting in September.
A USCP tactical response team arrived first at the Washington Navy Yard but was told by a supervisor to leave instead of entering the building.
Aaron Alexis, a 34-year-old former US Navy reservist, killed 12 people.
The USCP union called a department investigation into the matter “flawed”.
