Phoenix Police Chief “Working Hard To Ensure Safe” Trump Visit

From the Phoenix Police Department: Kristen and Micah Glasser, along with others from Phoenix Police, were invited to the White House to meet President Trump as part of National Police Week, just minutes before he was to address the nation from the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington, D.C. where Officer David Glasser #8144's name has been added this year.

On Thursday Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams issued a statement to assure the public that the City of Phoenix Police Department will “ensure” that the visit by President Trump for a rally on Tuesday, August 22 will be a safe event. “While Phoenix is not immune from critical incidents, I want you to know that your city is working hard to ensure another safe event,: stated Williams.

Williams says that because “high profile events are common in Phoenix, we are well prepared to handle another Presidential visit. Our experience with other dignitary visits, Super Bowls, music festivals, major professional and collegiate sporting events, allows us to quickly deploy resources that keep our residents and visitors safe.”

According to Williams, “the Phoenix Police Department has officers assigned to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center to constantly monitor and evaluate activities that may impact our local communities. These long term partnerships with other local, state, and federal agencies, help ensure that information is shared and acted upon in a seamless manner.”

“While I won’t discuss specifics regarding our security planning, I want everyone to know that our preparations are well underway. We will have maximum staffing during the visit and are working 24/7 with our partners to ensure all of our resources are in place. We do expect a lot of activity in the downtown area but we are prepared to minimize the impact to area businesses and residents,” continued Williams. “As always, I expect our officers will remain professional, decisive, and immediately responsive should the need arise.”

    Only through the division of bitter partisan politics should this be a big issue.
    The mayor of Phoenix should be honored to show case his city tob the president, to have the president come to the valley and address his supporters.
    But sadly the alt left is admittedly already trying to snatch up tickets to play games with crowd size appearances, Mexico’s first sitting member of congress, the deplorable Raul Graftjulva has chosen to attend, sadly not to support the president but instead to protest the president and the event.
    I truly hope Chief Williams and her staff keep both sides separated in order to promote a safe experience for all in attendance.
    I’m guessing since Arizona isn’t on the major political road map that the timing and location are most likely leading up to the public pardoning of sheriff Joe.
    While those on attendance will rock the house, the militant left outside will go into criminal meltdown mode and break, burn or destroy everything in sight including democracy as they exercise their right to have a tantrum.

  2. Divide and Conquer that’s their goal. That’s what Hitler did to take power in Germany. They can’t win in the arena of ideas. Lie and deflect. That’s is what is in their cupboard. Keep it up, the Democrat party will be exposed for what they truly are FASCISTS!

  3. Police Chief Jeri Williams is the definition of public servant. Can she teach Stanton what that means? Doubt it! He is as dumb as a box of rocks!

  4. President Trump’s visit to Phoenix will be an opportunity to arrest a large number of the protesting Liberal Left Antifa, et. al., and the Phoenix Police Department can start with “Ralph Grijalva,” as he was known when I moved to Arizona back in 1965.

    • But they are democrats they can’t be arrested. Their motives are as pure white! snow! But now we know that white snow is racist because it is not inclusive. So are their motives no longer pure? What a conundrum! It is so confusing!

  5. According to DNA testing, I’m 1% Bantu Southeastern African and 2 % North African, not to mention Native American, Sicilian, and the generic Western European, and 2 % Asian mixed in. Is it safe for me to go to Phoenix next week to hear President Trump since my ancestry almost encompasses worldwide DNA markers or will I have to defend myself against Antifa which only judges by skin color?
