Homeland Security Details Super Bowl Safety Plan 


The Department of Homeland Security has revealed that it will be deploying more air marshals and behavioral detection officers as part of the effort to help New Jersey and New York police secure the Super Bowl at Met Life Stadium. The location presents several security challenges, given its proximity to a major airport and commuter train lines, particularly since many of those who plan on attending the event will be using mass transit to reach and leave the venue. Other security measures will include random baggage checks and the deployment of radiological detection teams in the nearby transit hubs. Homeland Security officials say that federal agencies including the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration will deploy hundreds of employees to help the New York and New Jersey police in the security effort. According to a TSA spokesman, the agency will deploy its Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams at train stations beginning Wednesday, when they will start conducting random baggage checks, and will be adding equipment and opening additional screening lanes at Newark Liberty International Airport to handle the increased number of people traveling to attend the game. Other security measures will be implemented by the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Patrol, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
