Stamford cop leads team for President Trump visit
Stamford Community Police Inspector Ian Martin will lead a contingent of officers from Lincolnshire to support colleagues during US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.
President Trump is due to visit the country from Thursday, July 12 to Sunday, July 15.
He will meet with the Queen and Prime Minister Theresa May.
Security around his visit is expected to be tight with major protests planned while he is in the country.
Around 50,000 people are expected to descend on central London to protest against his visit.
In a Tweet this week, Inspector Martin said he would lead a team of officers to support "UK policing for the Potus visit".
"Tweets may be reduced/sporadic this week as I am leading a team of Officers from @lincspolice headed South to support UK policing for the POTUS visit. Here's hoping the cool weather continues!"
Assistant Chief Constable Shaun West said: “Mutual aid and support allows the flexibility of sharing finite resources.
“We have been fortunate ourselves to receive that support from forces across the country in times of excess need, for example during the flooding.
“It is right and appropriate that we support our colleagues in and around London and Scotland with the visit of the President of the United States.”
