Local and federal law enforcement officials on Wednesday said there are no known credible terrorist threats to Super Bowl 50 or the events in San Francisco that lead up to the game this weekend.
San Francisco Police Department has been preparing for the Super Bowl 50 for three years, working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, FBI and other agencies to ensure public safety during the nine days that The City is hosting Super Bowl events until Feb. 7.
“The Super Bowl events [thus far] have gone well,” Police Chief Greg Suhr said at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. “We have no reason to believe that it will be any different as we go forward.”
David Johnson, FBI special agent in charge of the San Francisco Division, and Santa Clara Police Chief Michael Sellers also reiterated Suhr’s claim that law enforcement is unaware of any significant threat to the Super Bowl.
