SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Police will be out in force in Candlestick Park for Sunday’s NFC championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants.
Besides having extra officers patrolling the stadium, police are warning that any harassment or threatening gestures of visiting fans won’t be tolerated.
Giants fans entering the stadium will be handed a card with details on how to contact police if they feel threatened, while undercover officers dressed in Giants gear will be in the crowd to make sure hometown fans don’t get out of line.
Police also had extra officers on duty when the 49ers beat the New Orleans Saints 36-32 on Jan. 14.
During and after that game, police say 19 people were arrested on misdemeanor charges, while one person was arrested on suspicion of selling counterfeit tickets.
