1st Lady Melania Trump Will be Protected by Japan’s Elite All-Female Police Squad
Melania Trump will be protected by a highly trained, all-female unit of officers during her and President Trump’s upcoming visit to Japan.
Japan is experimenting with all-female teams to combat various security challenges ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics, which will be hosted in Tokyo. The move is also in response to the country’s sexual assault problems.
“The job is to look out for any dangers and suspicious individuals at the destination of female dignitaries,” police Sgt. Kawamura Reiko said Thursday.
“Our aim is to be gentle and astute, utilizing the viewpoint and sensibility unique to women to ensure there won’t be any dangerous things or suspicious people at the location,” she said.
Have a terrific weekend.
