This Sunday, Seattle undercover officers will be putting on their Jaguar jerseys and milling the crowds again at the Seahawks/Jaguars game at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle police began deploying officers, many dressed as the opposing teams' fans, at stadium games after reports of violence and harassment at the end of last NFL season.

So far, the plainclothes officers deployed at the Raiders preseason game and last week's 49ers game have broken up a few minor scuffles, but have not witnessed any major personal fouls, SPD blogger Jonah Spangenthal-Lee wrote on the SPD Blotter.

We understand there will be competitive banter between rival fan bases, and officers aren't looking to crack down on friendly trash-talk. Officers are there to deter crime and encourage civility, and ensure fans of either team aren't intimidating or harming others.

Seattle police plan to continue deploying the undercover officers throughout the season as circumstances allow.

They remind fans again to keep with CenturyLink Field's Code of Conduct and refrain from the following: threatening other fans, intimidating other fans and harming other fans.
