INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- In Indianapolis, officials are ramping up security ahead of the Super Bowl by using elaborate techniques to keep visitors and fans safe.

Homeland Security crews installed 75 cameras to keep an eye on downtown Indianapolis and the thousands of fans who will pack Circle City during the 10 day celebration.

The surveillance network will link with cameras already installed around the Indiana War Memorial by a state agency that watches more than 24 acres throughout downtown.

Homeland Security officials will also deploy cameras on moving vehicles, helicopters and pods that can be moved to different locations as needed.
