LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Thirty Louisville Metro Police Officers are heading to Washington D.C. to provide a security detail for President Obama's inauguration next Monday.

It's the third time LMPD Officers have worked a presidential inauguration.

“It’s a long, cold day. Fifteen to 16 hours on the street in 15, 17 degree weather. So it's not a fun detail,” Lt. Gary Burman, with the LMPD, said.

The officers leave Louisville Saturday morning, and return late Tuesday night. They'll be stationed along the parade route down Pennsylvania Avenue -- providing crowd control.

Officers we spoke with say they're excited to be part of the historic event.
