Sergeant at Arms of the United States Senate

The Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate or originally known as the Doorkeeper of the Senate from the First Congress until the Eighth Congress (April 7, 1789 - March 3, 1803) is the law enforcement officer for the Senate of the United States. One of the chief roles of the Sergeant-at-Arms is to hold the gavel used at every session. The Sergeant-at-Arms can also compel the attendance of an absent Senator when ordered to by the Senate.

With the Architect of the Capitol and the House Sergeant at Arms, he serves on the Capitol Police Board, responsible for security around the building.

The Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate can, upon orders of the Senate, arrest any person who violates Senate rules.[1]
