Bismarck Police statement on President Trump's visit

Trump speaks at the Bismarck Event Center in 2016.

In response to inquiries, Bismarck Police have released this statement in regards to President Trump's upcoming visit to the area.

The Bismarck Police Department, along with several other area law enforcement agencies, have met with the US Secret Service regarding President Trump’s upcoming visit to Bismarck-Mandan. We will not provide specifics about that meeting because that would compromise the safety of not only President Trump, but bystanders, our staff and other agencies’ staff.

The Secret Service will determine the risk and security plan for President Trump’s visit. The Bismarck Police Department is working with Secret Service Agents on security, using a model that has been developed over years of partnership.
