Super Bowl Train Security

Posted: Updated:
Secaucus, N.J. (MY9NJ.COM) - Now that the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium has been designated as a level-one national security event, New Jersey Transit is stepping up their security as well.

Many ticketholders will be traveling by train to the game since NJ Transit has added additional services that Sunday.

Counter-terrorism expert, Jonathan Gilliam, discussed what NJ Transit’s game-plan would be to thwart any type of terroristic activity.

“You’re gonna see a greatly heightened awareness of the federal, local and state groups that are gonna be there and you’ll see a presence of them,” he said.

In order for riders to get on a NJ Transit train on game-day they will have to show their Super Bowl ticket and abide by the NFL clear bag policy.

“(The clear bag strategy) is effective but it’s not complete, so you need to do more things than just that, such as having people that are trained to look for certain things in certain bags. I can search a thousand bags but if I don’t know what I’m looking for it’s not gonna do me much good. The way that these groups work nowadays they really are professional, unconventional warfare units, that’s what they are. I don’t like to necessarily only look at terrorism, I look at criminal and deranged attackers as well. There’s only certain areas where any of those groups can attack if they want to get maximum results and that’s really where you need to concentrate,” Gilliam said.

Even with additional law enforcement and the greatest security system, it’s important that everyone pay attention to their own safety and the safety of others.
