NYC cops to keep close eye on Super Bowl fans

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police are blanketing midtown Manhattan with temporary surveillance cameras as one of many security measures being taken to protect visitors for the Super Bowl.

The cameras will supplement a network of permanent surveillance cameras that provide live feeds to monitors at an NYPD command center. Officers there watch for possible terror threats and other suspicious activity.

Hundreds of extra uniformed and plainclothes officers also will be assigned to protect "Super Bowl Boulevard," a 13-block street fair along Broadway that's expected to draw large crowds.

In New Jersey, up to 700 state troopers will patrol in and around MetLife Stadium on game day. The NFL has committed another 3,000 private security officers to the event.

FBI analysts are also monitoring the latest intelligence to detect any specific threats against the Super Bowl.
