It’s all-hands-on-deck for the New York Police Department and Metro Police Department as all officers on Tuesday are expected to be in uniform, ready for anything in the wake of a potential indictment coming down against former President Donald Trump.

Officials in New York City and Washington, D.C. are preparing for unrest and demonstrations after the former president told his supporters to ‘protest, protest, protest’ any imminent action against him by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in his case involving hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump, 76, said last week that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday, but a law enforcement official told DailyMail.com that an indictment is not expected until Wednesday at the earliest.

An NYPD internal memo obtained by CNN shows that all officers are to be in uniform and prepared for deployment on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Daniels’ is also beefing up her security after her attorney said she received concerning messages, including some threatening her life. 

According to an internal memo obtained by CNN, all NYPD officers were put on notice Tuesday to be in uniform and ready for deployment should there be any unrest associated with a potential Trump indictment.

Law enforcement officials tell CNN there are currently no credible threats in New York even though Tuesday is a ‘high alert day.’  

Washington Metro police are also preparing for protests, but the U.S. Capitol Police ‘is not currently tracking any direct or credible threats to the US Capitol,’ a department intelligence assessment obtained by CNN notes.

NYPD is the largest police department in the country, with roughly 36,000 current officers and 19,000 civilian employees. This week’s memo suggests that all 36,000 officers are expected to be in uniform and on standby for deployment on Tuesday. 

Many lawmakers and politicians on both sides of the aisle have said no one wants a repeat of January 6 – with Republicans claiming they don’t expect the demonstrations to turn violent, but warned instead of a ‘political circus’ surrounding any potential indictment.

On Monday afternoon, the NYPD met with the U.S. Secret Service and the chief of public safety for state court officers.

Their session wrapped up at NYPD headquarters late on Monday afternoon, with a decision to ramp up security around the courthouse starting Tuesday morning, a law enforcement official told DailyMail.com.

However, the source said the indictment is not expected until Wednesday, at the earliest, and that Trump likely wouldn’t come to New York until early next week.

‘They had their meeting and discussed a whole bunch of stuff about putting extra lighting out there, how they’re going to put more barriers out there, and send their special response teams in,’ the official said.

‘The NYPD is going to do what they do when the United Nations comes into town, with stepped up security,’ they added. ‘But they don’t even think it’s going to happen this week.’

‘The indictment may happen, but they don’t think Trump comes this week. I’m told there’s an additional witness who is going to testify on Wednesday, so if there’s an indictment it’s not going to happen until Wednesday or Thursday, so they think he probably comes next week.’

Donald Trump on Monday night published a video to Truth Social, condemning the 'witch hunt' against him. He said over the weekend that he expects to be arrested Tuesday, but a law enforcement source told DailyMail.com they don't expect an indictment to come down until Wednesday at the earliest

Trump declared he is the victim of a ‘Stormy ”Horse Face” Daniels extortion plot’, saying he’s being targeted by a series of ‘horrible radical left Democrat ‘ investigations.

Daniels is feeling the effects of Trump’s possible looming arrest amid his attacks on her.

Her attorney Clark Brewster told TMZ that Daniels received ‘vitriolic messages’ on social media and is taking extra security precautions – though he did not share specifics out of fear of tipping off someone who might want to cause her harm.

Some public comments online include those calling the porn star a ‘worthless wh**e’ and ‘degenerate prostitute’ who they claim ‘should be in prison’ for ‘extortion.’

Trump's lawyer said the former president continues to deny the substance of the allegations of a sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels – calling the $130,000 hush money a 'nuisance payment' that wealthy or famous people sometimes use to make a distracting situation disappear

The former president – who believes he is on the cusp of being arrested this week – told his supporters he would protect them during a riled-up post on Truth Social. 

He warned: ‘They are not coming after me – they are coming after you. I’m just standing in their way. And I always will stand in their way.’
