Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Jakarta Police will mobilize around 4,000 officers to guard the second leg of the AFF 2010 final between Indonesia and Malaysia at the Bung Karno Sports Stadium, Senayan here on Wednesday (Dec 29).

"We will deploy a large security force with the assistance of the National Police headquarters," Senior Commissioner Baharudin Djafar, a spokesman of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police said here Monday.

Each sector of the stadium would be guarded by one detachment consisting of around 100 personnel.

Around 3,000 Police officers would be on standby at the Bung Karno Sports Stadium, and 900 others to help manage traffic around the stadium.
