As Written By Major Garrett for CBS News:

WASHINGTON — Before dawn at the White House Friday, with President Trump inside the residence, a silent night suddenly roared toward daybreak. A Secret Service dog, alarmed by a would-be intruder, rushed the target, part of the first-ever live security drill on White House grounds. The goal is to find problem areas.

In his first network news interview, Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles told CBS News that agents need to simulate real-time scenarios.
