More than 200 officers will look to keep a projected 50,000 people in line in the downtown area. "We will have officers stationed at every block", says Sgt. Trent McKinley.
The game-plan was hatched on Friday for hundreds of officers come game time Saturday evening. Officers say they want to work alongside the fans.
"We are fortunate that we have done this a few times, so it’s not a foreign concept to us", adds Sgt. McKinley.
