NEW YORK (Sputnik) — The headquarters of the US President-elect, New York City's Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan, present a massive security challenge to law enforcement, New York Police Department (NYPD) officer Giancarlo Pellino told Sputnik on Thursday.
"The location itself is challenging enough," Pellino said. "We are in the heart of Manhattan. Police works around the clock to ensure highest level of public safety and orderly conduct."
On Wednesday afternoon, the US Federal Aviation Administration declared a temporary no-fly zone over the Trump Tower in New York City, which will stay in effect until January 21, 2017.
As of Thursday morning, sand trucks still surround the building's perimeter and hundreds of police officers patrol the area. NYPD is reportedly joining forces with security service to ensure safety in the logistically challenging location.
