Two years of planning have produced a comprehensive plan for North Texas Super Bowl security, officials said Friday.The plan is intended to safeguard locations around the region when an estimated 200,000 visitors join local residents at hundreds of events during the week of the February 6th Super Bowl.

Officials with a dozen federal, state and local law enforcement agencies demonstrated parts of the plan Friday in an Arlington parking lot near Cowboys Stadium where the game will be played."Not one agency, not one city could do this alone, and so it takes an incredible amount of coordination, preparation and planning," Assistant Arlington Police Chief James Hawthorne said.Included in the demonstration was everything from high tech to horses.


Arlington Police have acquired some new equipment with homeland security grants including unmanned helicopters to watch over the stadium site.Deputy Arlington Police Chief Lauretta Hill will be the commander for stadium operations the day of the game.
