Law enforcement center is on tap to ensure a secure Super Bowl LIV

Not sure why the video was made for the big game in Atlanta last year. Not really a big deal. It’s all the same boasting & strutting each year anyway.

“Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, law enforcement agencies — both federal and local — have started to share information on possible threats, both seen and unseen, to better mitigate and defend the homeland.”

“This includes upping security during large events where thousands of people are gathered in one place.”

For clarification:

And they’ll do an analysis with a number of analysts that we have, and they’ll identify either past practices and things that are happening at different events to be able to push it out to more coordinators that are officers in the field,” he said. “So they can know signs and symptoms of what to look for, for terrorism, or something that could have happened in the past.”


Questions we’d love to see newspeople ask:

If special games require special security-what keeps regular games safe? Crowd size/capacity is similar at several stadiums.

Are fans less safe at regular games?


How do fusion centers play in the real world of crime?

Any shortage of cartel-sourced heroin, cocaine, fentanyl or meth anywhere in the US due to use of fusion centers?
