It is almost Super Sunday! Even with a pandemic and fewer fans in the stands than usual, the Super Bowl is a big day for security and safety and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, through Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is on it.
Here is ICE's description of its Super Bowl safety protocol:
"While the past year has looked nothing like any year in recent history, one thing that won’t be different is the presence of the men and women of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) at the Super Bowl. As it has done in other Super Bowl host cities over the last several years, HSI is working closely with local, state and federal law enforcement partners in the Tampa Bay area to provide essential public safety measures and help address criminal threats that the National Football League and host city may face leading up to and throughout Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7.
As the returning champion Kansas City Chiefs and hometown favorite Tampa Bay Buccaneers gear up for the big game, HSI and its partners are also in the midst of intensive planning and coordination to ensure that the Super Bowl LV is as safe and secure as possible. For HSI Tampa, these preparations started over a year ago, when the office first began working alongside its government partners and the NFL."
Who do you pick? Chiefs or Bucs? Mahomes or Brady?
