NEW YORK: Hillary Clinton is set to meet with law enforcement leaders, including the retiring New York City police commissioner who recently said Donald Trump's candidacy scared him.

Clinton campaign aides says she will meet in New York Thursday with eight leading law enforcement leaders, including retiring commissioner Bill Bratton of New York and his successor, James O'Neill; Charles Beck of Los Angeles and Charles Ramsey, the former police chief in Philadelphia.

Bratton said in an interview earlier this month with CBS News that Trump's "shoot from the hip" style and "lack of depth" on policy issues scared him.

Clinton's meeting comes as Trump has accused her of being "against the police" and vowed to restore law and order if elected president.

Aides said Clinton's meeting has been planned for several weeks.
