The Metropolitan Police have recruited hundreds of officers from across the country to help cope with the Extinction Rebellion protests.
Kent Police has confirmed they have sent a "small number of officers" to help with the operation, along with 42 other forces.
A spokesman said: "Kent Police never discusses actual numbers of officers deployed to a particular operation not least because the number of officers required is subject to operational factors which are subject to change."
Protesters have blocked roads and bridges for three days in an attempt to get the government to change the laws to help prevent climate change.
More than 500 people were arrested within the first two days.
Last month, protesters blockaded the Port of Dover even sticking themselves to the floor.
Today, the Home Office announced an extra 147 will be recruited by Kent Police.
