OAKLAND, Calif. -- Oakland Mayor Jean Quan says the city would try to prevent future shutdowns at the port if port officials picked up the $1.5 million tab for the hundreds of police officers that would be needed.

Quan also told the Chronicle that the city would probably not be able to prevent port closures anyway since a handful of protesters could sneak around police lines.

Anti-Wall Street protesters blocked longshoremen from reporting to work for nearly 24 hours on Dec 12, shutting down much of the port.

Police mostly stood back during the demonstration.
