As Super Bowl 53 approaches, 25 elements of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with nearly 600 personnel, have been working to support State, local, and private sector security officials ensure a safe and secure event. At the same time, the Department, through Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), is on the ground in Atlanta working to combat criminal organizations’ attempts to exploit the event.
On January 30, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen met with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel, local law enforcement officials, and the National Football League (NFL) security team in Atlanta to discuss joint efforts to ensure a safe and secure Super Bowl 53.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plays a critical role in Super Bowl security operations. DHS officials worked with the National Football League (NFL) security team, federal partners, and state and local law enforcement for nearly two years in preparation for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Twenty-seven DHS entities were involved in security operations.
