Candlestick Park Shooting: Head Of NFL Security Visits Stadium

The shootings that took place at Candlestick Park have prompted the league to make radical changes for both the Raiders and 49ers, along with all around the league. Some of these updates were relayed Thursday night via Chris Mortensen’s Twitter. Here they are:

NFL Chief of Security Jeff Miller heading to SF tonight for further review of 49ers-Raiders fan violence, will meet w SFPD Chief of Police.

Miller, who succeeded Milt Alherich as NFL security chief, launched league’s fan code of conduct under the direction of Commissioner Goodell

NFL weekly audit of all games played on fan safety/incidents. All 32 teams get grades. San Fran grades have indicated more attn necessary.

Despite Raiders’ perception, Miller said team CEO Amy Trask embraced several measures that have improved stadium security past 2 yrs or so.

In the end, the safety of the fans, players and stadium staff is the ultimate goal. Regardless if that means even more random checkups, mandatory upgrades to security, or simply a higher league presence for each game, any move that could be made should be made.
