With the San Francisco 49ers Levi's Stadium set to open next summer, Santa Clara officials are looking to hire 120 police officers to work stadium duty at $55 an hour.

The Santa Clara Police Department will put some of its officers on football duty too. But the amount of officers needed is more than the department can provide while still patrolling the rest of the city.

Tuesday the city council is poised to approve $200,000 for two outside firms to perform background checks on candidates.
