Law enforcement reported no issues in Billings and Yellowstone County after the rally and incident at the Congressional building in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.
A rally at the Granite Tower office of Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and a demonstration at King Avenue West and South 24th Street West were peaceful, according to the Billings Police Department on Thursday.
Both were dubbed "Stop the Steal" rallies to protest alleged election fraud and to support President Trump, and came on the day Congress certified the Electoral College vote for the presidential election.
Police and the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office say they expect the same on President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
Last year, demonstrations in Billings went well, including the George Floyd protest in June.
"People in our community are pretty proud of our community, and they want to keep it peaceful just as much as they can," said Sheriff Mike Linder, a Republican.
The sheriff and the police have communicated and say they will be ready in the event of any problems.
"It's business as usual," said Billings Police Lt. Brandon Wooley. "We are prepared to respond if necessary. We are not tracking any violence or illegal action in Billings."
"We haven't heard of anything," Linder added. "But we'll pay attention and I'm sure there's people around the state that are going to be keeping us informed as well. Without talking too much about what we do or how we find out things, when we become aware of something we pay attention to keep our eyes open and our ears open just to know what's going on. The troops out in the streets will pay attention, and if something comes up we'll address it."
"People in our community are pretty proud of our community, and they want to keep it peaceful just as much as they can," he said.
Both the sheriff and the police have not had major incidents at demonstrations.
