No arrests at Dodger Stadium with new security system in place

Dodger Stadium

The increased police presence at Dodger Stadium last night certainly paid off when it came to public perception of the proceedings: There were no arrests made during the DodgersCardinals game, a clear contrast to the opening series when a Giants fan was severely beaten in the parking lot.

It sounds like the new approach to Dodger Stadium security, which includes a big presence from the Los Angeles Police Department and some sophisticated mapping techniques designed to identify problems before they happen, was a winner. There were 38 people cited for misconduct, mostly related to open alcohol containers, but nothing more serious.

Of course, a Dodgers-Cardinals series doesn’t summon the passion of a Dodgers-Giants series. While the first night with the new security approach was a success, the real test will come the next time the Giants are in town on May 18.
