Prisoners treated better than the police officers protecting Trump

Police officers working on the operation to protect Donald Trump during his UK visit are being forced to stay in ‘conditions worse than prisoners’, it emerged today.
Outraged police officers shared pictures of where they are being forced to sleep for three nights after their 12 hour shifts. Some are being forced to sleep on a gym floor whilst others are in army barracks in tightly-packed camp beds.
The gym was meant to cater for 300 people and there were complaints from officers about freezing cold showers, cramped conditions and nowhere for phones to be charged. Hundreds of officers are being forced to sleep in cramped conditions. Claire Laura, from West Midlands Police, shared a picture of a gym, and said: ‘Colleagues of mine have been deployed for some president visiting and this is their bed for three nights after working 12 hour shifts. ‘Prisoners get better conditions.
More than 10,000 police officers have been drafted into cover the American President’s four day visit to the UK, Police officers were shocked to find this was their bed for the night. West Midlands Police Federation Richard Cooke said: ‘Nationally this is being challenged.
It’s really bad, totally inadequate and appalling. This will not be left.’ Hampshire Police Federation chairman John Apter shared pictures of the officers digs on Twitter.
He said: ‘Prisoners arrested last night will have had better accommodation than those police officers ensuring the Presidential visit runs smoothly.
