‘No Specific Credible Threats’ to Super Bowl as DHS Components Secure Venue

by Bridget Johnson

The Department of Homeland Security considers Super Bowl LIV one of the highest-risk events of the year, and is making sure the Miami venue is secure ahead of Sunday’s face-off between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Assistant Director for Infrastructure Security Brian Harrell, who did a walk-through of Hard Rock Stadium with Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf this week, told HSToday that “there are no specific credible threats to this event” yet DHS is not letting its guard down as “over 1,500 homeland security employees are been engaged to ensure the security of fans during this event.”

“The Super Bowl and other area venues have been designated as ‘No Drone Zones’ by the FAA. We ask that fans leave their drones at home,” Harrell said. “Fans continue to be our greatest resource to ensure a safe and secure game day. I would encourage the public and everyone participating to be very vigilant. If you see something, say something and be on the lookout for any suspicious activity. DHS works hard so football fans can have fun on game day.”
