Tampa Bay is a body of water in west-central Florida. A nice place to live, with new condos and restaurants popping up all the time, downtown Tampa has a somewhat lively, if not quite bustling, daytime vibe but how safe it is to be there on the day of the Super Bowl event?
According to U.S. intelligence report says there is no credible threat of terrorist attacks at the February 1 Super Bowl. A police said Wednesday that visitors for super bowl should expect the type of heavy security typical of every Super Bowl since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Tampa Bay is a name of a region, but not a specific city that includes Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and smaller towns, for a total population of about 4 million.
While there is no shadow of specific terror threat, FBI and Homeland Security Intelligence report that Raymond James Stadium, the Super Bowl site, does not have the typical security features of permanently secure buildings, such as jails or military bases, this means that visible presence of security officers in every corner is expected.
