Border Protection lends a hand for Super Bowl security
GLENDALE, Ariz.- Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines that are typically deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border have been brought to the Super Bowl venue to assist with the security effort.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed off the technology Monday as it helps with Super Bowl security.
Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske was on hand for a demonstration of the agency's six Black Hawks and large mobile X-ray machines that are used to detect contraband and explosives.
The helicopters and X-ray machines are from Tucson and Nogales, some of the busiest spots in the nation for the smuggling of drugs and immigrants.
Kerlikowske says the Arizona border with Mexico still has adequate security while some equipment is used in Glendale for the Super Bowl.
