The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and security will be tight. Federal Department of Homeland Security officials and the FBI will aid state and local law enforcement in monitoring the event. More than 700 state troopers will be in and around the stadium complex. But they won't be the only people guarding the game. State, local, federal and county law enforcement will be on hand too. Three-thousand private security guards will also be on site, along with extra security patrolling mass transit. Even rail passengers who aren't going to the game will be subject to baggage screening and random checks at subway stops around the area.
