Live matches football US agencies are preparing for a triple threat alongside the LV Super Bowl
Triple threat - this is how the agencies in the USA described the organization around the security measures in the Super Bowl. The National Football League (NFL) title game, which is also one of the most watched sporting events in the world, will take place this Sunday (February 7th) in Tampa, Florida.
The organization of such a match requires coordination between 70 local, state and federal agencies, but this time the Super Bowl will be held in a pandemic and a few weeks after the storming of the Capitol in the midst of the political crisis. The security agencies report another great difficulty that they will face for the first time - the match forecast by live football match
will be played at the stadium of one of the participants `Tampa Bay Buccaneers`.
Up to $ 40, 000 for a Super Bowl ticket
According to FBI Special Agent Michael McPherson, the Super Bowl plan is being developed for a year. But recent political developments in the country, as well as the ongoing coronavirus crisis, have necessitated some changes.
The LV Super Bowl is classified as a high-risk event (SEAR-1) and therefore receives the highest level of federal resources, including canine explosives detection teams, cyber risk assessments and air security.
The FBI field office in Tampa, headed by McPherson, will host more than a dozen agencies in an intelligence operations center, where agents will collect, analyze and disseminate Super Bowl data and communicate with other units in the country.
Last week, the State Department issued a cautionary recommendation because `there are constant threats in the country from terrorist attacks linked to the presidential election. `
Hundreds of law enforcement officers and golf carts will be stationed at Raymond James Stadium throughout the week. According to Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan, they will be prepared for potential violent political demonstrations. `We have a plan for all kinds of demonstrations, regardless of their message. `This facilitates security agencies, which have fewer places for physical security, but at the same time opens up other problems for them.
All the accompanying events around the Super Bowl have been canceled, but the authorities will still monitor for places where there may be crowds.
This is due to the enthusiasm among the locals, who see their team at the Super Bowl for the first time since 2003, when the only `pirate` title came. The team had not participated in the playoffs for 13 years.
`When we found out that the Buccaneers would be at the Super Bowl, we started thinking about what we needed to fix and what difficulties this was causing us, ` McPherson said. Police Chief Dugan added that the biggest problem was `crowd control`.
Law enforcement warns that the risk of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 400, 000 Americans so far, should not be overlooked.
The mayor of Tampa has ordered the mandatory wearing of masks on the stadium grounds, and Dugan must also think about the safety of his US agencies are preparing for a triple threat alongside the LV Super Bowl Live matches football
