Bismarck Police say extra officers will be on hand for both candidates' visits to Bismarck.

Deputy Chief Draovitch says they wait for a request from the secret service before they take action.

He says the swat team will be present, as well as officers from other agencies.

So far they've received no permits for protests during either candidate's visit.

They're expecting street closures for Trump's visit, but are unsure of where at this time.

Draovitch says their main priority is keeping everyone as safe as possible while attending the events.

For Trump's visit, people can expect to walk through secret service security before entering the event center.
