ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis Police are getting ready for the World Series.

Police Chief Sam Dotson will meet with the Cardinals Monday to map out security plans.

“It will be a variety of things: from game times, how are we going to staff the gates at the ballpark, are we going to wand, are we going to do pat-downs, are we going to do bag checks, what streets are going to be closed, are there any threats toward St. Louis,” Dotson explained.

The chief says police have learned a lot of lessons about securing large events since September 11, 2011 and they will be using video cameras, air monitors, and a lot of officers to help keep the World Series safe.

“Boston taught us a lot of lessons just this year so you will see a heightened level,” he said. “There’s only one World Series going on and we take it very seriously. We’ll be focused on it and we’ll put every precaution in place to keep people safe.”

St. Louis will be home to the third, fourth, and – if necessary – fifth game of the World Series. Those will be played Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
