SFPD to Go Undercover in Dodger Blue
During the three-day series between the Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants, you can expect the usual trash-talk and peanut-spilling around the stadium. That's all innocent fun, but what cops will be on the lookout for are the rowdy and violent fans.
So far, these patrols have helped keep the peace.
SFPD Officer Gordon Shyy told us that yesterday, during the first of three games this week, "nothing violent" happened, which he attributes to public awareness of this increased and incognito police presence. If troublemakers know more officers are milling around, "they may think twice," he said.
Now for the burning question: How do presumably pro-Giants police feel about sporting Dodger blue?
Shyy chuckled when we asked, telling us that the officers had no choice in the matter; they were assigned to their undercover posts. And whoever said being a cop wasn't a hard job?
So if you are headed to the game tonight and see baseball fans donning Dodger garb, best not to mess with them, for obvious reasons.
