Detroit police step up security ahead of World Series game

DETROIT -- The World Series has federal, state and local police agencies stepping up in Detroit as the games three, four and a possibly a fifth game get underway.

Nearly 100,000 guests are expected in downtown Detroit this weekend for the World Series.

Federal, state and local police agencies are coordinating strategies with some even going undercover.

It is a move to help make sure nothing goes wrong as the world's spotlight shines on the motor city.

"I don't think too often we see the kind of teamwork and collaboration, teamwork is very important," Mayor Dave Bing said. "I think all these ladies and gents understand how important this event is going to be to Detroit and all of southeast Michigan."
