Routinely, my agency would provide about 200 deputies to any Presidential visit. The state would often have 25 - 50 officers. Localities would have a large percentage of their personnel. And these number would be repeated as you passed from county to county. Secret Service would have about 50 agents assigned, between the advance team and the detail that accompanies the principal. Indeed, being two local law enforfcement officers have died this year on Presidential details, perhaps you would like to explain to them that they were not really there...

Connie, security is the job of the Secret Service - which is unable to provide the actual manpower to do the job. Thus local law enforcement carries the bulk of any Presidential visit - at expense to the locality. A campaign visit is not a Presidential visit, it is a political function, and thus a locality can bill the party for services rendered. I worked about 30 VP/Presidential and other visits in my local LE career...

Connie, your math is quite faulty. 17.8+8.1+5.6+1.7+.8=34.1, therefore, blacks constitute 17.8% of the population! If it were 17.8% of 34.1%, then black would constitute 6% of the population.
