Bulldogs release security plan

The Bulldogs have announced a raft of security measures aimed at ensuring there would be no repeat of the violent crowd scenes that blighted the NRL club's recent clash with the Sydney Roosters.

Chief executive Malcolm Noad met with NSW Police and the NRL to finalise the plan, which will be enforced for all games.

It will start at this weekend's double-header at Telstra Stadium.

The plan includes:

* working with the NSW Police Service, venue managers at home and away matches and security prior to each event to undertake a thorough risk assessment;

* appropriate numbers of police and security to be allocated to games;

* identifying and informing all supporters of "alcohol free and family areas" for Bulldogs home games;

* informing away clubs of designated away team seating and no alcohol family areas at both the Sydney Showground and Telstra Stadium;

* taking specific action against all identifiable offenders including ejection, lawful prosecution and lifetime bans.

The initiatives were prompted by ugly scenes at the Bulldogs-Roosters game two weeks ago at Aussie Stadium.
