PHILADELPHIA, PA — The Philadelphia Police Department, known as @PhillyPolice on twitter, has been sending out warnings to football fans that they will be wearing Saints and Eagles jerseys at Saturday’s game.
This is apparently to help deter fights between fans on game day.
According to NBC10 in Philadelphia, Chief of Police Mike Duffy tweeted out the news on Thursday that their police would be in Saints jerseys.
Some Eagles fans were upset that their officers would be sporting the other team’s colors.
The police department tweeted again on Friday that they’d be wearing gear for both teams as well as regular plain clothes.
