Trump stopped at a gun range "for a little shooting practice" with local police ahead of his meeting with law enforcement officers at the local Fraternal Order of Police lodge in Iredell County, N.C.
Campbell told Trump at the event that the North Carolina Fraternal Order of Police had endorsed him and would encourage the national organization to do the same.
The Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union, declined to endorse any candidate for president in 2012.
Speaking briefly to the local chapter Thursday, Trump stressed his support for police and praised their courage, after criticizing Clinton, his Democratic presidential rival, on the issue earlier this week.
"I'm on your side 1,000 percent," Trump said. "What you do is incredible."
