ROCHESTER, Minn. - We’re learning more about what local law enforcement did to prepare for the big presidential visit.
Police Chief Franklin tells KIMT local law enforcement only had 10 days to prepare for the president’s arrival in Rochester.
About 250 law enforcement personnel, including federal officers, were on duty throughout the day.
