Police officials joined city leaders and officials from Major League Baseball Wednesday in providing traffic and safety information in preparation for up to 100,000 visitors to next week’s all-star game and related festivities.
“It is our priority to provide a safe environment not only for our guests, but for our residents and businesses as well, so everyone can spend an enjoyable week in our city,” Police Chief John Welter said. “We have spent many months in partnership with law enforcement agencies, and we are prepared to welcome baseball fans from around the world to Anaheim.”
The department – working with MLB and Angels Baseball – formed an Anti-Counterfeiting Task Force. They warned would-be counterfeiters that undercover officers will aggressively enforce the law during the July 9-13 events.
They also outlined road closures for related event and transportation and parking options.
