He says he won't reveal their tactics, but even more police will be on the street on Super Bowl Sunday, and they will have outside help.

“We will be out there. We've got a significant plan, working in conjunction with other city agencies, as well as some state and federal partners as we always do. And we will do everything possible to keep this city safe, property and people.”
