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.
Over 25,000 tickets were reserved at the Mayo Civic Center for Trump’s Make America Great Again Rally, and out of all of those people there was only 1 arrest made by Rochester Police.
The chief says he’s proud of the team effort that got the president into and out of Rochester safely.
“A lot of new division leaders on the leadership team at the city it was a great opportunity for us to pull together and come together collectively to make the event happen and just pull together to make the event happen it was an all hands on deck situation where we needed every bit of assistance.”
