Security to protect the athletes, people attending the Super Bowl and the people living in New York and New Jersey is tight.
Unfortunately there is a history of terrorists targetting sports events.
So security precautions are very extensive and thorough starting with a high fence right around Met Life Stadium and there will be airport-like security portals that patrons must pass through to enter MetLife Stadium.
But all events planned for both NYC & NJ also need a lot of security because both the public and athletes are in danger everytime there’s a big crowd as there will be at the Super Bowl Boulevard planned in NYC in the lead up to the big game.
Fortunately NYC’s police and transport authorities have heaps of experience in handling security given events in the city can sometimes number millions.
There are of course a number of Federal Authoritites involved as well and some much needed Federal financing to cover the cost of the extensive security arrangements. LIKE that New Yorkers and the people of New Jersey are kept safe.
