NYPD: Super Bowl Security Will Be High-Tech And Unprecedented

The NYPD will have had a full complement of security measures in place for a week, including: police helicopters with special sensors to detect radiation on the ground, a counter terrorism 360-degree camera car to look for suspicious packages, bomb dogs, video cameras mounted as the NYPD’s “eyes in the sky” at various event locations, lots of radiation detection boats in addition to the usual complement of heavily armed cops.

“The biggest Super Bowl event will be Super Bowl Boulevard, a football-oriented urban theme park that will feature dozens of NFL and sponsor attractions, including viewing areas, a concert stage and a signature event, the toboggan run,” O’Connell said.

Times Square will be on lockdown. Starting at midnight on Jan. 26 through Feb. 1, Broadway from 33d Street to 48th Street will be closed to vehicles. In addition, 41st Street will be closed from 9 a.m. to midnight
