First lady Melania Trump will be protected by Japan’s first-ever all-female police squad during her and President Trump’s visit to the country in the coming days.
Japan is experimenting with the all-female squads in response the country’s sexual assault problems, Newsweek reported Thursday.
“The job is to look out for any dangers and suspicious individuals at the destination of female dignitaries,” police Sgt. Kawamura Reiko told Japanese media Wednesday.
"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.
About 10,000 police officers will be on duty when the Trumps visit the country during their visit to Asia next week.
