The Raiders and 49ers are set to face off this week for the first time in four years. In preparation for the meeting, the Raiders have made a statement with regards to beefing up the police presence for the game.

The Raiders, Oakland Police Department, Alameda County Sheriff, and Coliseum Management have worked together to create an increased law enforcement and security presence at Sunday's game. This includes a substantial increase in uniformed law enforcement officers, additional undercover officers, and increased private security staff. Public safety is a top priority for the Raiders, Coliseum, and local law enforcement and all are working diligently to ensure that fans enjoy a safe and secure environment.

These two teams used  to meet every preseason until the game at Candlestick in 2011 when there were several violent incidents. The two teams ceased playing the game and the NFL upped its security as a result as well.

The Raiders are looking to get ahead of it by letting all fans know they need to behave themselves.
