NYPD to deploy 36,000 officers amid Trump indictment

In a law enforcement internal memo, officials said Tuesday would be a "high alert day," though no credible threats were reported.

All 36,000 officers in the New York City Police Department were reportedly on duty on Tuesday ahead of the indictment of former President Donald Trump, with the civil courthouse in Manhattan receiving a bomb threat, and the NYPD receiving a slew of hoax calls.

In a law enforcement internal memo obtained by CNN, officials said Tuesday would be a "high alert day," though no credible threats were reported.


Officials in New York City are reportedly worried about possible retaliation from citizens, as Trump encouraged his supporters to "protest, protest, protest," should he be brought to jail. 

In Washington, DC, the Capitol Police "is not currently tracking any direct or credible threats to the US Capitol," according to a department intelligence assessment obtained on Monday by CNN.

Trump's potential arrest comes after it was discovered that Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen had paid Stormy Daniels, a former porn star, $130,000 just days before the 2016 election in alleged "hush money."

However, the indictment is not expected to occur until Wednesday, and it is not likely that Trump will arrive in New York this week. 

"They had their meeting and discussed a whole bunch of stuff about putting extra lighting out there, how they’re going to put more barriers out there, and send their special response teams in," a law enforcement official said, according to the Daily Mail.

"The NYPD is going to do what they do when the United Nations comes into town, with stepped-up security," they added. "But they don't even think it's going to happen this week."

"The indictment may happen, but they don't think Trump comes this week. I'm told there's an additional witness who is going to testify on Wednesday, so if there's an indictment, it's not going to happen until Wednesday or Thursday, so they think he probably comes next week."

A spokesperson for Manhattan’s civil courthouse told the Daily Mail that a bomb threat was called in via 911 on Tuesday morning, putting on hold court proceedings.
