SHORT TRIP-- LONG MONEY

That trip to Worcester by the President last month was a costly one. More than 186 thousand dollars. 123 thousand dollars of that was for overtime for police officers. Worcester Police Chief Gary Gemme says that his department will pick up the cost of the trip. Since it was what they "White House" called an official trip - the fed does not pick up any of the protection detail costs. The chief tells the Worcester Telegram that the costs were reasonable.
