The officers are working alongside their colleagues in Minneapolis and participating in operational briefings important to the mission of keeping all safe at this major planned sporting event.

“Having our Atlanta based officers working side by side with our local, state and federal partners at this year’s Super Bowl will provide us with valuable information as we work to prepare for Atlanta’s hosting of the Super Bowl 53 next year,” said Atlanta CBP Director of Field Operations Donald F. Yando. “We are proud to collaborate with our law enforcement associates to combine our resources, tools and techniques as we work toward our shared goal of protecting the American public.”

Leading up to this year’s Super Bowl, CBP has been working with local, state and federal law enforcement partners in Minnesota to secure the various venues during the Super Bowl. As a law enforcement agency, CBP has an obligation to support other law enforcement agencies when requested.
