Charlotte Police Learn Lessons From NATO Summit Security

May 21, 2012  | 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police got a first-hand look at the security plan for the NATO Summit in Chicago, and said they took away several lessons for the Democratic National Convention in September.

The U.S. Secret Service dictated almost every aspect of the security plan, and will do so again in Charlotte, reports the Charlotte Observer.

CMPD Deputy Chief Harold Medlock said his city would be "a secure site, but will it be completely devoid of people? No," referring to the swaths of Chicago blocks that were empty on Saturday.

The DNC is expected to draw 35,000 visitors to the North Carolina city.

It wasn't the secret service who kept a handle on the protests and the black bloc. It was the men and women of the CPD and their counterparts from other law enfocement agencies. The Kudo's need to go to the rank and file. Not the Secret Service who were worried about only a select few to protect.

Secret Service were meeting with the hookers of Chicago when CPD was battling the front line.
