There would have been nice. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And Baltimore are gonna battle about 530 -- even in the dome right now right in front of us it's a -- spanned the Steve Gleason. No white flags there jam it down there they got to -- have been going on there's -- there's video and audio and all kinds of media events happen all overhaul debate over here. Fold thanks for joining us Obama be given away in two tickets to Drew Brees is concert this Friday night this is pretty -- -- -- relief concerts us about the blue. Creatures Swiss banks and -- when you nailed it ride with -- I just believe all of 111 call. -- meantime her -- -- rock and -- talk all kinds of folks. These Super Bowl. I believe is. And number one single -- sporting event in the world. Now they always point to get over the big soccer playoffs and all that but that's over the course of several days and weeks or whatever it is. All in one day -- in the -- -- the Super -- is the biggest sporting -- the biggest -- watched on TV worldwide and we got representatives from the press. All over the world here you know in new -- and radio role in this spot and maybe. Then they go. -- again until play. This is better yet the venue here and in the background as a the president has plans for a it's for a team Gleason. No I flags. Joining me up near the top of the Pakistani float. Is that new special agent in charge of the FBI for New Orleans and therefore the state of Louisiana might Mike Anderson might have missed the Mike. Arias but go ahead today. To see you again man and -- a third game I think I think that's right wing radio city. It feels in Jefferson passed you know you're you're wondering amount you actually all over the place you end Jim Latin Kimmel and we were doing the do in the tour. A lot of people don't realize you know that's that's. Like defense like the super bowl of things like this unfortunately that attracts the some of the dregs who were always looking to stand yet. Same thing with with with tragedies though there's always somebody looking taken Benjamin points above gonna give us a little bit and -- so they're always -- opportunist out there. Are you home aren't -- especially should try the FBI what a big event like this the Super Bowl it has been declared the a national security have been our Homeland Security event was. I guess the other web Homeland Security I mean -- the Big Three -- security Homeland Security has basically been determined that this now and we'll. It's a big deal was put it like that and energetic and and security secretary Jim and pulls out of this at a press conference. And the rare revealing and discussing some of the different things were taken on. Proud press wants another a lot of people in the city in Orleans who are little. Understand it but PO. About all the streets they got shut down especially an entire week ahead of time before the games let's build that -- dome. One of the main reasons they're doing that is because they have to put a perimeter around the -- and I know people to go -- how I get tickets -- -- -- go to championships where it was just wanted to experience the holy event. That's not happening and so that's why am I appreciate you taking this kind of talk to us today also joining us ahead of the state police -- regular visitor here -- -- -- -- Hello my -- and how you doing man -- great great to -- years. That's your fancy beach -- I -- a bad -- Google Super Bowls the momentous day instead of the pelican man. -- best of -- took over Republicans with a base with a basketball team man's arm or your opponent out big time they lose you have all want. So I go stay with -- Now you all okay so we gonna talk security -- -- the dome the -- being set up around the don't. The point just exit off the interstate though the Claiborne eggs and obviously all over all elevated. We eased to get to the interstate exits are shut down and the river bound side deployed dress. By the dome is also shut down and this they are gonna put a perimeter now. And then -- have been recommending -- that people take public transportation especially since they have the -- -- brother goes to our loyal from a quarter from canal street mall itself so there's. A lot more public transportation or bring you their. You a million -- that far you can walk anyway but that's I mean. The -- -- a fence around the entire super dome complex area over there from Loyola. All the way through via overpasses and -- just it's basically don't be walled off right. Oh that's right in and Mike in and she -- -- actually it could probably speak more to that that's their primary lane. But it's consistent with in any event of this magnitude whether DVR and see the DNC the inauguration. You you start with the economy concentric circles and then as soon as you move farther away you can. You know -- relax those perimeters of debt but but that is kind of the nature of the beast for an event like this well and. But the thing -- it is one of the things that we argue about in people coming here and try and to have the Super Bowl come back you're Tony eighteen for the 300 anniversary. All of it is is the fact that we are so close and all inclusive but when it comes to doing what you're trying to do with security. Dallas a lot of the events happened downtown and then you gotta get the truck and go to Beverly because food food you know we have actual news sporting facility is way out of there. I mean that do you have to do -- parameters or you're really only concerned about game day stuff and just haven't been as a whole lot easier. In your neck it was for -- security -- and in two separate areas like. Well -- two years ago actually was in the Dallas office and we that that aids is a business. Exactly the problem you face because he do you have to have multiple parameters whereas here you're only dealing with one -- -- I think -- places like Glendale Arizona even places like Miami. San Diego you're gonna handles multiple parameters. I and it is at its end and Mike can speak to this we're getting good looks -- -- and -- limit our intensive but Delaware who makes the determination of -- -- is there. You have like a little cheat sheet up there and then in the and inside the beltway and ago. This size of event is a Homeland Security event and next step down he -- I mean I mean I know what's the Super Bowl it's it's a given that it's going to be one book. -- the final for a Homeland Security event. -- is you know what. What what determines it just the amount of people -- generally draws. Yet I mean there is a there's there's a -- grieving process and super ball -- right up there in the top of the Olympics is another example. Some like the final four ball games is going to be able levels down. And -- we have folks. You know that just deal with this stuff back there and FBI headquarters. Not a mental all of our partners Louisiana State please you guys do this for life you know every day. And so they they look at all sorts of criteria they look at you know the expected population. You know national significance and that's why the Super Bowl is such a big deal because there is such a global event. And as a global event -- and I mean there are you just go wandering in and where over the air radio row and see. Don't listen to all the different dialects and different the other languages of people are rattling off. As good as they as they cover this event for their. Own a home town on the radio blather the WWL's of the world out there of course you know they can always come up here to talk about developing -- make you get the best of the best all right. 106 ONE 7866889087. We are told for my my guess -- top the market down to -- here in the media center in hall H of feet. Ernest morial convention center. Mike Anderson who is and how you've been your mind seven months now I have -- even a year or -- Armani the NRA -- -- -- -- front Washington DC. But I've been around a few field offices including Dallas has an -- OK we're bigger -- you look look there's. -- or break -- real good Mike Anderson is the superintendent. Mike Anderson's special agent in charge. Mike elements and it's like the Mike and Mike show -- should I -- I should branch out and took them whereas the serious folks in the us Canada mica microwave here and they both got guns so I got -- -- enough -- Mike Jemison who is a super center of the state police is joining us when we come back you'll figure O'Brien here we are talking about of course. The security that is set up for the Super Bowl and how -- how it's gonna. Affect you and again if you know here we go online at WW dot com right at top of the page the big yellow banner you can click on all of those links. And they will tell you what you need to do if you wanna get close to the -- Are you want in the stay far away from the film the information you need is there and we will elaborate on that here on the structure of the -- 87 we'll get back here again Mike Emerson. Superintendent Louisiana state police Mike Anderson and especially for -- charged with the FBI all my guests this hour in the bush so you'll get a double fault you gotta do. Up though you bullet as Jumbo did a good job a lot from Trent did that's -- big -- and an oxymoron big triumph. No emotion Rex. There's Aaron folks over there coComment -- and all remember all Leo -- remarks no news to people coming up we're there rotating and dirty -- or not they get shrimp and sausage dog Jumbo lot. They have some crab -- here before and to launch a longer Mike Mike -- Superintendent Louisiana state police is my guess appear as is Mike Anderson. The FBI's special agent in charge for. New Orleans air go the entire -- Louisiana correct friend and who ever since -- those text messages that every Thomas -- air goes sounds silly -- go on the say it again. So all right so we're talking security what what happened at a press conference by the way -- -- us secretary Napolitano say at the press conference that. -- should anybody be surprised that the big event we're ready for you enjoy yourselves don't try to sneak a -- and. -- I thought it was a nice overview. That she gave as well as for the SEC from ice. Mike Edmondson here Ellis Ellis. It was well received and I mean receive good it was a huge press -- was it primarily just you know. Last minute information that's basically been repeatedly reiterated time Padilla mean we're any surprises -- catch anything. I don't think any surprises and I even made a comment that you know as we sit here today there's no specific or credible threats beyond just not that were not. I mean we all remember when I am coming out it was -- OK right after nine elevenths and book. I -- on the radio and but are we all came down to see the tanks we put like that at. The -- in the but the big tall twelve foot page where fans in the tanks roll plays and that was right after nine elevenths I mean everybody. Everything that wasn't even close to being a threat was considered a threat because everybody was on such a Tyler's status. But again this is a huge event it's an international event is the singer's -- the single biggest sporting event one day event. In the in the world saw me you got to take a cirrus like that but again no credible threats upfront. Right it and I think 9/11 changed the perfect cup preparations for the Super Bowl drastically. So and we've now got I think a pretty nice battle rhythm. You know since 9/11 on healing these events there's a pass off we've been working on this thing for a year we picked it up from Indianapolis and -- we were in Indy. For that event just like cattle folks from my New Jersey and then new Yorker here now need and so I think the torch is in the past pretty pretty easily. I know it's a pretty important thing because I mean you are. The number one FBI agent here and you still have to have a passing around enact this Ronnie Jones over there who is like mr. behind the scenes. Sounds like your name on ironic -- I don't like guys you no longer the race of the the Louisiana state police in you know that's -- -- if the race the secret guy. You know you've got an access. Mike right here though. It's played well there are no OK they -- twister which evocative narrative us live Doug's got it. Doug Kaye oh yeah there's Doug came a Melissa maybe downstairs yet they've got your record those and they're going get out. You're you're the chief chief couple whole state may not gonna -- -- you don't have -- -- -- Mike in -- got one you don't want to. Game day you'll see -- -- credentials we have everybody no matter who your you've got to have the credential you gotta have a ticket to get into any event and then that cares about that but you have to do that yet you have to set that example you have to set that president that way. You don't show does not supposed to all right let's let's go to class Lance you don't wanna come up -- this is the -- in the gritty of it okay. Mike Anderson give us the overall view this is why the big -- there are people who still think that they're going to be able to experience the Super Bowl like from championship square. If you don't have a ticket and how many tickets more than 90000 how many -- a -- that don't I don't know exactly offhand but I mean. Between hit the people in the boxes. And the seats in the dome and the -- people there's going to be probably about a 100000 people who have an access card hanging around their neck and there are people out here. You impress a different mind you know they plan -- -- people and such we're gonna have field access to do certain things. Call on game day but this probably about a 100000 of these cars like this that have the green background I'm lonely gold. Those people are going to be able to get inside that perimeter and that's it. That's correct him and I'm very against that. You have a whole group of individuals are barely get into this. The facilities around the dome inside that that they gave this this yours isn't something different yeah I mean they're two things another -- -- like where is the perimeter going to be. If I don't have one of these passes and I don't have a ticket am I gonna get any closer than pointers in law and loyal. You're not going to dinner and SSI even sie war is trying to come down at that particular day it is going to be so many people so much traffic is to be like down -- You're not there's going to be other drive through the area that's that's not gonna happen so why put yourself in that position. -- to the -- should not be thank you for people that you came up after. After a Katrina -- their defense around and had one up around not to not eleven so. We've we have that in place people understand that they work through that and you need that again what's so great about New Orleans. Unlike any other place on earth you're able to come here we've got it one. One area it's a wall couldn't city you can walk from the French or walk through super -- so once people get into their hotel to get into various and it's more. They're pretty much stuck at that point whoever transportation available a lot of -- good weather should be good the next several days so we're pleased that. I mean there are a lot of places you can park and get on the street where they got the new streetcar -- going -- -- beautiful dog park on the other side of the -- Rovio French Quarter walk through canceled because -- thing run around. If you're not going to be able to go when you can. Right volume on the streetcar but I'm sure -- -- just assume that they didn't until after the game actually starts or some like fabric I mean there's just going to be. It's almost 3000 people who had any of the places though from around the city bar register on people who -- feel the energy might have made and they should -- come around -- and I'll be able to that is not going to be litigated that. Those parameters and where they'll face with a firmer for sure that Loyola pointers it goes all the way along Loyola like so -- -- between that goes up Americans. The old Macy's settle par all led up their throw that rose between the back to back portion around the arena. Back over towards the -- train station. And then. Brian I guess right front of the the -- that area there and then what about the -- some of the overpasses or. Cut off over there took you have this -- -- -- travel we push from those there's availability of additional streets. No we don't know full -- there it is in the bottom line is if you got a ticket come enjoy it if Yang gonna take -- you have the feeling energy through to keep that then all the surrounding restaurants and bars little -- they all gonna -- -- -- they are doing yourself a favor and just let the lucky hundred -- that have access in their let them go. And then you can feel the love afterwards -- you know otherwise. I mean. -- handled it pretty well but it's it's going to be a quagmire I mean you got a bunch of -- 100000 rowdy football fans -- crying -- a lot of -- -- -- -- tailgate name nobody drive and a truck and we're here for public safety which will make sure the people who wanna come -- have a good time to enjoy themselves like we do every -- morning growth. We understand a big party you understand large crowds we wanna make it safe and as much as you will see. The hundreds and hundreds of police officers on that 238. Uniform state troopers will be the president got others that are -- investigative and don't plainclothes position so -- -- more than that that's about a quarter of mob mob police force they talk to go to all boils and drive like a crazy man you know there's still okay. Clearly we have your picture and if you get under. Due to quite frank that's why you gave me that that -- -- -- computer chip on the back -- -- license well you know David I got to step away when we come back -- picked -- exactly is this going to be like airport. You know I can only have three ounce bottles and I want to termite and -- to get through state exactly what is going to be required overview of visitors. The size of the bag the polls surveying give us exactly what we need to know. If you're able to get into the superdome for the super bit special to be a -- break -- for the news back for more from hall H on top. Deep pockets county float here in the media senate crank him up to Super Bowl 47 right here on your home -- Super Bowl WWL. -- They didn't hear enough about when did they thought these conversations and -- with the cops off the air is like lower. Mario got some stories to put the outcome come beating you with a dog story right okay running right -- them. You're next to a -- There's -- pretty far to food chain among the -- remarks in the state police here again he's like that I don't know what you the trouble shooters on them. That's a good way to political note that Mike Anderson of the FBI. Special agent in charge vote vote vote vote we see on the field offices slump. You know the whole state snipers -- -- never Mississippi tour just the state of Louisiana just the state Louisiana Tech -- -- and I mean we call you live in the south of the club enormous field office but the -- still office covers everything correct and these guys in and of course my Gammons and I would over the whole state. And you're doing well. Nowadays I'm not gonna say about that -- -- five. Six years ago this was the case of Louisiana the relationship we have -- federal -- and particularly FBI. Coming up I can call Mike Anderson I can go find CM home going cases they were working with the moment things are involved in the Louisiana. We sit down we talk about a we discussed some -- he gives me input he allows and doesn't what's going off that's something that some president or not talked to my count. No I don't think I guess stores -- for years and years that there's some got a big friction. Between the local local police and FBI it's an absolutely not -- ask -- on your to -- taken my collar and all around the tree on all my internal I wanted me. They fears it would chief around say we set up meetings -- local insurers will local chiefs he's there front senator talk about what's going wrong. It would look real colorful state a lot of things have in this state they've got a job to do we have a job to do they do very very well. But I would you know the public know what a great relationship. That we have on the federal level and that has not always been the case -- that's good. I'm glad to hear it. And the reality is that we have so much overlap. While I don't like that word I'll do get into his like again. You guys don't each almost likes I don't want us to do we turn to think of a step on each other's toes. Because -- do have so much overlap in the things that you guys investigate and that's what allows one -- You know how do you get a great working relationship could you do step on each other's toes in performing your legitimate. Assigned duty while I'm on his task force I've troopers assigned an FBI about the case we work with the saints a case we worked up. Owned -- different events that is step that we work in conjunction with. And then look we look at from a state perspective we take allegations we applied. To state law -- -- we we don't deal with the innuendoes and and those that we deal with facts and we work on those facts. But I think the key point here. Has affected they do have a job to do and when he goes into there they -- evolved into it we share we talk about it and we we move forward with it doesn't matter who it is. Can -- better rest of it they've broken the law. It doesn't matter it's me or anybody I mean we understand that I got to an -- and now when we deal with that aren't just doesn't happen in other parts of the country. Let's talk an hour ago about they actually getting under the dome and Mikey was saying how my chemists and their state police and other local police and things like that are more. A more capable to explain to us exactly what is going to be required of you to get in their -- is -- Homeland Security of enemy do you guys actually set the standard a million forces are worth doing you know it's just like again going on the airplane. Where you know my suspenders set off the thing I'm gonna have to determine and coffee get their you have three ounce bottles. One of the ways to get in there. Well I mean you're looking at a partnership with you know -- DH ST SA. And others with the state locals. The FBI itself does not really get into the minutia of of prohibited items and we obviously have to be aware of that in the course of our investigations. But. In Louisiana state police and and NO PD aiming -- They do this on a daily basis. They do all the events you know LSU games and saints -- and hornet schemes and and so. You know so we were highly deferential. To those folks. -- did you make that kind of call that -- all right well you have -- list right here Mike would you show only much Jemison. This is -- saints game people really it's not going to be any different we spent the whole -- season prepared for this and the Sugar Bowl. She should have been -- on the defense might well go you're probably right about that but we wait the same type things that they brought and expecting this is -- ticketed event if you don't have a ticket. The other to get in you're not gonna get past Loyola employed just to begin when you're you're not but are they going to be checking for this stuff at at that and then be intrusive dome here I'm looking at weapons of any kind. Fireworks can quarters umbrella struck. I mean look I got my cellphone -- here and I think -- still weather but you can't bring a cam quarter -- and small cameras -- binoculars they are low -- beach beach -- yet complete councils around -- his camera -- down those are prohibited so all of Stalin did not run liquid none not even the aluminum bottles no nothing cameras lenses can belong in six inches. No mace no pepper spray no banners no noise makers -- horns no cans of hairspray or anything like that no laser. And you don't know you're gonna actually make everybody into their pockets where knob which you have people let this that this thing that's going to be check of those things I think about is when you're there you get to that point. They get to leave over which you call bring you some place else I mean that's that's you know about this if you reach a certain point if for some reason you get past. Lawyer Obama say Loyola employees is okay that's perimeter gate number one where they gonna check you big check you again getting into the dome. They got a spot check people they'll probably that would -- -- a what you have at that point they can stop them look. Expectation that you'll be checked in some areas but. How how would be prepared to be checked it relocation measures that. The nature of the beast where prevented of this magnitude and if you get past loyal and -- the first checkpoint you still. For some reason that the likelihood of you getting through the thing on this list is slim and none but if slim happens and they spot check you on the inside this is gonna get confiscated and ecological bringing back your cars that I hold to form until after the game. You know and I can point out I can't bring my my -- while Swiss army knife with a scissors and -- -- that is not considered a weapon. And I can bring a sharpened number two pencil but I can't bring. Tiny tiny scissors what quiet while bringing anything that you suspect might be let you know what it's like a -- or they have got to watch the game and I have to do my mail so much and again I got a little funny and hang mail at the info I just got to -- it was clear spot them and I'm sure that they're gonna get out he could. But that's -- they -- are gonna termite and cough. To get him through the gate and they know exactly who I -- that's what good deal was all right 260187 won't. They'll stick around we come back that you were talking with Mike Anderson -- -- Mike Anderson it's a special agent in charge of the FBI. My chemists and the superintendent Louisiana state police we are talking about security. Around the superdome for the Super Bowl and around when we get back to wanna cover all of these events I mean look. You know what things are pretty come over here and you're gonna have you -- special car this there's a big burly guys gave up they're not let you have put up a special card Mike's got his Mike Anderson's got his. They got guns and badges and -- still got a little deal. There's about 12. 34566. State troopers and I can see seven. Seven state troopers that I can see right here. And I side of each other what kind of what kind of both security -- we're looking at that areas like this that's away from the don't so we'll pick up them only get back from the beginning 78. Right here from Paul HP media -- crank it up for Super Bowl 47 for your home go all the Super Bowl here on WW I'm a vote Linda stern burger. Some tickets to the big time being green is a fancy fancy coming up this Friday night we'll see picking -- your tickets MS Linda congratulations. The December I will give another pair of tickets away next hour so make sure you keep listen here on the splurge on a 1000070 WWL. We're talking security around the dome and around the entire city you know lost we have to remember tune. While they have suspended Marty Roth. In the city is like it's been split in half we got first we give last week in big Mardi -- Then the Super Bowl this weekend and then the big weekend a Mardi Gras coming up afterwards there is still Mardi -- going around the this area so we are having while we got what. One of the guests Mike Emerson stable and a million people coming into the area over here as estimate for the Super Bowl and everything else -- a lot of people are still coming in from McGraw and there's a lot of people. Who are you know. No ashore North Shore -- they've god Baton Rouge hammer -- -- hole oh here's. Yeah boy you know what -- -- little Spanish town parade up and battery is going to be a lot of fun actually most of around here just the big old boot -- -- the nights and nemesis and all accounts of -- goes on and then Michelle meant everything and of course the family brought. She got Frankie valley and a four seasons and -- Frankie -- is gonna saying. And then me and I got they got a big spread stuff going on tomorrow is Thursday. This the last Thursday of the month and that's usually when John Young joins made it to give us a heads up so fun I was going on Jefferson Parish tomorrow. But all this other stuff all these people that are coming into town. For the Super Bowl we still got people coming in from -- Now there are again the cool thing about. -- I like Mike Anderson -- the FBI. There's only one real perimeter they need to maintain. However there's not a whole perimeter around the city you've got you've got security that's here at the convention center -- gunmen in army inside your Anderson it's not your. Perimeter delisted this part of it it necessarily Homeland Security -- give them but it's part of an entire event so that security over here is pretty brief but big. You've also got the NFL experience of the got cool stuff going on over there including. Football players who were you know signing up you gotta pay to get into it but it's a wonderful it's certainly -- the morning. Up but I mean you've got a lot of events going -- around all over the city are they under an umbrella. Of that four or I don't say they're on their own but aren't because here in the media center. If you know they got they got some pretty good security you know. You guys got your passes if you don't have your passes got guns and badges you originated -- city of New Orleans has one team where the other team we have NFL experience here at the media center areas where you'll see troopers off. Up and down on the convention table of all we've got the bridge. The traffic coming off of that. So we've got a split it up as they've done and others say he the cities are another Super Bowls it's worked very very well it worked well here last time. And we just got such good relationship with Sydney on some beaches are pass and I speak you know that -- on a daily basis because I -- get it. New Orleans needs to succeed from the Louisiana we understand that. We won't we -- -- -- go -- will go to the rest as they once they get here had been near big advocate of this whole state. So ambiguous that government under his -- for a big -- to sort things -- I said that's a bone to the and that's how we handled the they security week we share that responsibility -- in the French Quarter. As you as you have without losing money grow shooters is where it is Super Bowls and all this other Obama ground is going on this weekend I mean normally to the Gerald rather than the sheriffs around the LA Wenzhou city they always -- are you guys for extra help but I mean there's so much people who enjoy spread which spread pretty fan. I don't I don't know that we can do too much more of them I think what the public needs to know. That we are so good at emergency response if something happens. The resource is our federal partners. From our state and local borders it's down here we're not we got to get there we're not at the point where we're gonna see no quote boots on the ground we're not gonna see a khakis out there. You know -- civil authority is more than enough and we're not gonna see the National Guard we feel that it is and we've got we've got things in waiting that if we need to do it there. Believe me that this is a proactive to distorted many years ago to what we have to take place this Sunday it's coach took. Took place sometime ago were prepared far. And our resources sitting on the ground to respond sued should something happen as far as all about and I proactive responses while we've done so well Louisiana. I am I gonna say you're so I mean you you don't have any concerns or words or anything like that. I would really don't I mean it's great that love Mike has taught him all the proactive response where we can take -- -- more of long term investigations things that go beyond. Beyond the borders Louisiana. Globally and so I mean I think it's a good partnership and that's what's important is the FBI's dialed in on all of them the boots on the ground activity. As is LS PN and ML CD for the local larger picture is in fact in a knock on wood it doesn't happen again. But -- FBI Ellis PL PB OB BO BS OJ BS so all the alphabet throughout their. We've got to get over 78 just Jumbo -- -- 78 over seventy agencies. Federal state local you name it we got people FBI from out of town coming in these guys. I mean this this this and armies. And then it all the year so that everybody can have a good time absolutely so -- do yourself a favor come on down have a good time leave all you announce this at home. Just bring your party. That is Mike and Mike thanks a bunch. Thank you should always a -- economic talk to you soon my guess Andre and I need to talk about other stuff too. But thanks for singles they do come you bet I wanna talk about the next week to talk let's super -- -- -- -- call you on Monday after all this this stuff is over. All right -- Florida sports show live from hall H in the meet the media center in the -- and more a convention center. From your home for the Super Bowl here at WWL.
