— Police in Washington D.C., asked officers across the country for help during the presidential inauguration. Four North Carolina police departments answered the call.

"I feel rather excited about it. I've never been to a presidential inauguration and a lot of guys haven't," said Capt. William Simons of the Fayetteville Police Department.

Fayetteville, Greensboro, Wilmington, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police agreed to help with security.

They are not allowed to say how many officers they will send or what their roles will involve.

Inauguration Day is Jan. 20.
