Secret Service Wants NYPD to Deploy 150 Officers a Day to Trump Tower

The Secret Service wants the NYPD to deploy 150 police officers a day to checkpoints outside the Trump Tower to protect the president-elect.

Law enforcement officials complained to New York Post that the deployment would divert resources from other parts of the city. 

The officers would be stationed outside the building where pedestrians are required to have their bags searched.

“They want the NYPD to handle all those checkpoints,” the source said. “They want 150 cops assigned every day.”

There are currently 84 officers outside the Trump Tower.

NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said the demand at Trump Tower could hurt other parts of the city.

“It does have an impact,” O’Neill said. “We’re taking resources from around the city.”
