As tens of thousands of fans plan to attend the Super Bowl in Houston, federal officials are working with state and local authorities to reduce the dangers of a terrorist attack.

“We’ve been working for several years with our partners to make sure appropriate security is in place,” Perrye Turner, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Houston Division, said in a statement. “We’re going to do everything in our power to make sure it’s a safe event.”

“On the day of the big game, we will be here, but our presence may not necessarily be seen,” said Mark Webster, an FBI assistant special agent in charge in Houston who is coordinating the Bureau’s Super Bowl security efforts. “We will have multiple elements in place onsite as well as offsite.”

The FBI will provide intelligence about possible terror threats while the Houston Police Department takes the lead role in security planning.

“We are using all the elements within our office,” Webster said.

The FBI will be providing SWAT teams and cyber squads leading up to the game on Feb. 5.
