This section of the website not only describes the history of the Sergeant-at-Arms but how their responsibilities have changed over the years. It highlights the need for the security they provide and how they serve as an integral part of the legislative process. 

Covering the early origin of the Sergeant-at-Arms in the British royal court and their reemergence into American government, it also includes a comprehensive timeline of the California State Capitol security detail and the Senate Chief Sergeant-at-Arms.
