Police to Step Up Presence During Mexico’s World Cup Game Sunday

Police and sheriff's deputies will increase patrols Sunday in Huntington Park during Mexico's World Cup match against the Netherlands after unruly behavior erupted during Mexico's previous game.

In addition, a three-block stretch along Pacific Boulevard--Huntington Park's main business corridor--will be closed to traffic between Florence and Gage avenues at 9 a.m., the start time for the Round 16 match.

The closure was ordered out of concern for public safety because officials do not want anyone to get hurt or any businesses to be damaged by "exuberant” behavior, said Michael Chee, a spokesman for the Huntington Park Police Department.

Additional police and emergency response teams will be on call throughout Los Angeles County should crowds become unruly, said Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, in a statement.
