1546. Protection Of Temporary Residences And Offices Of The President And Other Secret Service Protectees -- 18 U.S.C. 1752

Section 1752 of Title 18 provides for the exercise of Federal jurisdiction over disorders and misconduct in relation to Presidential residences, offices, and areas designated by the Secretary of the Treasury and restricted by regulations. It applies to any residence where the President may be located for any period of time, however brief in duration, provided the Secret Service is aware of the President's location. In the absence of such a designation by the Secretary of the Treasury, notice of such protected areas may be given by the posting of signs, cordoning off of the restricted area, or other forms of notice.
