CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The FOX 8 I-Team has learned how Cleveland police are preparing if the Indians win the World Series in game 6 or 7.

The night the Cavs won the title, large crowds of fans swarmed downtown streets and cars caused gridlock into the wee hours of the morning.

City Hall is not commenting on its security plans for any Indians win, but the FOX 8 I-Team has found some of the ways police hope to control a celebration.

Officers hope to learn from the last time. They plan to have more strict controls on the number of cars driving into downtown.

Police will have extra officers working traffic posts; the police helicopter will watch from above, and police brass will keep tabs on everything from an emergency operations center.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department will also have deputies out. And we've learned Cleveland police will have officers out patrolling on bikes.

When the Cavs won it all, the city didn't have many problems that night. But police are taking steps to try to prevent any this time.
