jtgriffin07/iStock(NEW YORK) — Police departments across the U.S. are bracing for potential protests after the Derek Chauvin verdict.Thousands of National Guard soldiers have been deployed throughout Minneapolis, where George Floyd was killed and Chauvin, now a former Minneapolis police officer, waits to learn his fate from the jury, who are on their second day of deliberations.Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said Monday, “I am grateful to our colleagues in Ohio and Nebraska for their willingness to provide assistance and relief to our state troopers and law enforcement officers as they continue to work to keep the peace in our communities.”The Department of Justice has also deployed specialists from its Community Relations Service — which specializes in conflict resolution and mediating disputes — to the Minneapolis area, two Justice Department officials told ABC News. Agency officials have been meeting with community stake holders in an effort to encourage the peaceful exercise of First Amendment activities, officials said. The deployment, which began about two weeks ago, was first reported by The Associated Press.A state of emergency has been declared in the region.Walz added, “We cannot allow civil unrest to descend into chaos. We must protect life and property, but we must also understand very clearly if we don’t listen to those communities in pain, and those people on the streets, many of them of whom were arrested for speaking a fundamental truth, that we must change or we will be right back here again.”“It’s our goal together — the mayor, the community organizers, people across this state, from law enforcement to ministerial associations — is to try to make sure we strike that proper balance of making sure the peace and stability is upheld, but that equally is important is that rage that will be on the street regardless of what happens is channeled into a positive way, and that positive way means change,” he said.Minneapolis Public Schools are shifting to remote learning Wednesday through Friday this week due to the trial.In Washington, D.C., 250 National Guard troops have been activated. A guard spokesperson said those troops are only “preparing to support” the local police department, so their presence won’t be seen unless they’re needed by police. If the Washington police asks for their help, the troops can help with crowd control and will serve alongside police at traffic control checkpoints and at Metro stations.The Chicago Police Department said last week that it was also deploying extra resources throughout the city.The police department said, “days off have been cancelled for members of the Community Safety Team, Critical Incident Response Team, Summer Mobile Patrol, all Area Detectives and additional specialized teams.”Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker tweeted Monday that he’s putting the Illinois National Guard on standby following a request from Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.“It’s critical that those who wish to peacefully protest against the systemic racism and injustice in our communities continue to be able to do so,” the governor tweeted.In Los Angeles, Police Chief Michel Moore said Monday that “added resources are already in play,” the Los Angeles Times reported.“Our entire department is in uniform,” Moore said, according to the newspaper.The LAPD said it’s retrained thousands of officers in crowd-control tactics, the LA Times reported.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

ST JOHN’s, Antigua (CMC) – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) yesterday confirmed the appointment of former Australia batsman Stuart Law as head coach of the men’s team on a two-year contract.The 48-year-old Law, a former Sri Lanka and Bangladesh head coach, will formally take up the post on February 15, just weeks before West Indies face England in a three-match one-day series in the Caribbean.Media reports last month had indicated Law had agreed a deal with the WICB.He fills the post made vacant by Phil Simmons who was axed five months after leading West Indies to the capture of the Twenty20 World Cup in India last April.We are delighted to welcome Stuart to West Indies Cricket. He comes at an exciting and critical time in the development of the West Indies men’s team, with the emergence of some outstanding young talent, as seen in the most recent Test series against Pakistan,” outgoing Director of Cricket, Richard Pybus said.“He has great experience and breadth of knowledge as a player and coach and his cross-cultural experience and winning attitude will be key assets in the development of the team.”Law played a single Test and 54 One-Day Internationals and also campaigned extensively for English counties Essex and Lancashire.Following his playing career he served in a number of coaching roles. He coached the Australia Under-19s, was head coach of state side Queensland Bulls and of Big Bash franchise Brisbane Heat.Last year he served as batting coach with the national side for the tour to Sri Lanka.Law said he was anxiously looking forward to his tenure with the Caribbean side.“I am excited at the opportunity to contribute to what I think is an interesting time for West Indies. I think this assignment has come at an important time of my career.”He is the third Australian to coach West Indies following on from Bennett King and John Dyson who both experienced troubled tenures.A WICB release said Law would be charged with gaining “improved team results while providing leadership to players and team management”.West Indies currently languish at number eight in the Test rankings and ninth in ODIs.Law is one of three top-level WICB appointments announced this month, with former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams named Director of Cricket and Englishman Johnny Grave replacing Michael Muirhead CEO.
