Footy final security beefed up
Police and security will make their presence known at this Sunday’s Great Northern Football League grand final at Wonthella’s WA Country Builders Stadium to discourage any bad behaviour among spectators.
League operations manager Grady Tomelty said he expected the crowd would be generally well behaved.
“All these teams have played each other before without incident, so the crowd should be fine,” he said.
Despite this, he said precautions would be taken to prevent any unwanted incidents. “There will be a police presence at the game, we will have security patrolling the ground and the clubs will have security in their bar areas as well, so there will be a lot of security floating around.”
Mr Tomelty said alcohol would be sold at the game but a booze bus would be on site to prevent drinkdriving. He said there would be a zerotolerance policy in place for antisocial and abusive behaviour.
Acting Inspector Brad Bird said it was standard practice for police to attend any major sporting event.
The league match between Mullewa and Railways is at 2.15pm.
