Here it is

That manages to disturb me in two quite distinct ways simultaneously. It is disturbing it is being done at all, though I expect to hear a casual "we need to prepare for all eventualities" as if this was not important.

But it also disturbs me in the diametrically opposed way. If you seriously think the risk of rioting or worse is real, and presumably there is little reason to think one urban area will differ greatly from another, 3500 staff will go nowhere. I am not sure how exactly you would define a small town, but that the UK has 350 or so seems plausible. So that's ten each. So it manages to be too many and far too few at the same time, depending on your point of view.
