Super Bowl fans may encounter TSA Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams on local transportation venues, including commercial and general aviation facilities and mass transit. Teams partner with other federal, state, and local transportation and law enforcement to reduce potential terrorist risks to the traveling public.

Fans are encouraged to report potentially dangerous situations to law enforcement or someone in authority. The Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something™” campaign reminds the American public that security is a shared responsibility.
