EAST RUTHERFORD - With just two days to go until the Super Bowl, security around the stadium is at an all-time high.

A massive security effort has brought a hundred different local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to the area.

Using state-of-the-art security, agents from the Department of Customs and Border Protection X-ray every single delivery vehicle arriving at MetLife Stadium. The scans will deliver images which can be analyzed for possible terrorist threats. 

Deputy Chief Rudy Frank says, “There are three levels of checks. We have radiation check; we have canine sweeps and an actual X-ray of the contents that we compare with delivery orders and manifests.” 

Officials say so far, no threats have been discovered, a sign the beefed up security has been effective.

The security checks won’t be over until after the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
