The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary has met with state and local law enforcement officials and the National Football League (NFL) in Los Angeles, California, to review DHS operations to help ensure the safety and security of employees, players, and fans during Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13, 2022.

“The Department of Homeland Security is fundamentally a department of partnerships, and those partnerships are critical to ensuring the safety and security of Super Bowl operations as well as that of the surrounding community,” DHS Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas stated in a press release issued by the DHS.

DHS support for Super Bowl LVI includes more than 500 DHS personnel providing extensive air and maritime security resources; chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives detection technologies; venue, cyber, and infrastructure security assessments; and intelligence analysis and threat assessments.

The DHS has classified this event as a Special Event Assessment Rating (SEAR) Level 1, meaning it is significant, with national and international importance, and requires extensive federal support. Several DHS agencies are working with state and local partners and the NFL to ensure the safety and security of Super Bowl LVI.  

“Our dedicated DHS workforce is working collaboratively alongside our federal, state, and local partners to provide operational and technical support,” DHS Secretary Mayorkas stated in the press release. “Just like the game itself, vigilance is a team effort, so please remember: if you see something, say something.”

The DHS is continuing its partnership with the NFL on the “If You See Something, Say Something®” public awareness campaign that uses social media, digital advertisements, and visual displays in the stadium and throughout the Los Angeles area to raise public awareness about the importance of reporting suspicious activity.

On Super Bowl Sunday, game attendees and the general public in Los Angeles can report suspicious activity by calling or texting this tip line: (562) 662-2344. Suspicious activity and threats of violence, including online threats, can also be reported to local law enforcement, FBI Field Offices, or a local Fusion Center.
