With the Democratic National Convention coming to the Queen City in just a little over five months, Rock Hill Police Chief John Gregory says that a handful of Rock Hill officers will be heading to Charlotte, joining some 2-thousand other law enforcement officers from across the country for the three-day event.
Gregory says the city’s bomb squad will also take part in the effort.
Funding for the officers’ work in Charlotte comes from a nearly 50-million dollars in federal funding that was given to the Queen City to assist with the effort.
Gregory says the convention has been designated a National Security Event, with unprecedented security measures.
The Democratic National Convention is expected to bring in some 35-thousand delegates, media, and President Obama himself, to Charlotte.
