AFTER MAKING PLANS TO DO SO SINCE OCTOBER, GREENSBORO NORTH CAROLINA NOW SAYS IT WILL NOT BE SENDING ANY POLICE OFFICERS TO HELP WITH THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION IN CLEVELAND THIS SUMMER.  GREENSBORO NEWS & RECORD REPORTS THE CITY WAS PLANNING TO SEND 50 OFFICERS TO HELP WITH CROWD CONTROL AND OTHER POTENTIAL PROBLEMS BUT SAYS CLEVELAND IS NOT PREPARED TO HOST SUCH A BIG EVENT EXPECTED TO DRAW THOUSANDS OF PROTESTERS. OFFICIALS SAY CLEVELAND HAD NOT AGREED TO PROVIDE WORKERS' COMPENSATION COVERAGE FOR OUT-OF-TOWN OFFICERS. CLEVELAND ALSO WANTED TO REQUIRE PHYSICAL EXAMS THAT INSURANCE WILL NOT COVER. GREENSBORO POLICE SAY IT WAS MUCH EASIER SENDING OFFICERS TO CHARLOTTE IN 2012 TO HELP WITH THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION..
