Following the vicious beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow at last week's opening game at Dodger Stadium, the LAPD has announced that it will institute a zero-tolerance policy at future home games, effective immediately.

The Daily News reports
that Police Chief Charlie Beck revealed some of the new security measures today, to be paid for in part by the Dodgers. The include off-duty police officers being put in uniform, officers at all entrances and exits, and a new data-based accountability system to track potential problems. At a press conference, Beck said that:

"When you go into Dodger Stadium, you're going to meet a Los Angeles police officer. When you leave Dodger Stadium, you are going to bid farewell to a Los Angeles police officer."
