ATLANTA — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers from the Port of Savannah, GA have deployed to help secure Super Bowl LIV in Miami, FL. In addition, Atlanta Field Office CBP Special Response Team (SRT) officers are on duty with Miami area law enforcement to assist with safety and security at key locations in Southern Florida and are also supporting other Department of Homeland Security response personnel.

Savannah CBP officers are collaborating with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to ensure the security of the game through the usage of Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) vehicle equipment. This equipment will be used to perform onsite inspections of vehicles making deliveries to Hard Rock Stadium by obtaining an x-ray image of the contents inside of vehicles.

“We are honored to work alongside our law enforcement brothers and sisters in Miami to ensure the Super Bowl is a safe and secure event, just as they did with us here in Atlanta last year,” said Donald F. Yando, Director of Field Operations Atlanta. “CBP Atlanta SRT and Savannah CBP officers are highly trained and will be critical to the security efforts.” 

This is the second consecutive year that CBP Savannah and CBP Atlanta Field Office SRT will be contributing to the safety efforts of the big game, as they provided the same security functions during Super Bowl LIII last year in Atlanta, GA.
