Law enforcement and security officials say they are ready for Super Bowl 43 in Tampa. NFL vice president of security Milt Ahlerich says local and national agencies are doing their part to keep everyone at Raymond James Stadium safe, and planning started two years ago.
Ahlerich added the Super Bowl is receiving help from the national department of Homeland Security, and fans attending the game at Raymond James Stadium would be in one of the safest environments to watch the game. Tampa Police Department Major John Bennett said the city has been preparing for this game for a while. Bennett said representatives from the department traveled to recent Super Bowls in Miami and Arizona to learn first-hand what they had to do.
