(Tallahassee, FL) -- Florida's state capital is preparing for possible violence surrounding the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

The city announced that Tallahassee City Hall and the Leon County Courthouse will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Tallahassee Police say while they are not aware of any specific threat, the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution related to possible protests at the Florida State Capitol complex. The Leon County Sheriff's Office requested the courthouse be closed so it can be used to assist with law enforcement operations.
