The Super Bowl is a huge event and always the center of security concerns. Since the game is being held in the New York City, the countries largest, it has escalated those concerns. New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton said he was currently unaware of any potential threats directed at the game.
“Certainly, we’re keeping an eye on activities around the world, but as of this time, there are no threats directed against this event that we’re aware of,” Bratton said, via the Associated Press.
Jeffrey Miller, the NFL’s head of security, took a shot at, or made a joke of, last year’s event when discussing security.
“This year we’re going to try to go blackout free,” Miller said. “One thing that I’ve learned is that you don’t want to be overconfident. You want to prepare and be ready. You just don’t know what you might face on game day.”
