An all-female police squad will protect First Lady Melania Trump during her visit to Japan Sunday.

The all-female police squad will protect Trump, Ivanka Trump, and other female dignitaries who are visiting Japan, reported the New York Daily News. This is the first time the Tokyo police department will use an all-female unit, reported The Asahi Shimbun. She will also have her secret service security detail.

“We opted for a more cultivated look to suit the occasion,” added a police officer in charge of the security plan, saying the women would be wearing black suits instead of police gear, according to The Asahi Shimbun.

“They think it’s more welcoming to have an all-female crew, and it’s not uncommon,” said CNN law enforcement analyst Jonathan Wackrow and former agent with the United States Secret Service for the presidential protection unit, reported CNN.

The Japanese police unit used for this trip is also in preparation for the 2020 Olympics Games which will be held in Japan.
