Japan Unveils All-Female Police Squad to Guard Melania and Ivanka Trump

Tokyo police have formed a squad of female officers to guard first lady Melania Trump when she and President Trump visit Japan in a few days, Japanese media reported today.

The squad will also protect Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and one of his advisers, while she is there for the presidential visit, local media reported. She arrived in Tokyo today.

The officers wore black suits as they trained outside Tokyo’s Imperial Palace Wednesday, ahead of the Trumps’ arrival.

“We opted for a more cultivated look to suit the occasion,” an officer in charge of the security plan said, according to the Asahi Shimbun newspaper. The team even practiced their training on the city’s streets.
