Sixteen days before the Super Bowl takes place in Tampa, local and federal law officials met informally with members of the local media today to discuss logistics, and introduce the press to a Joint Information Center at the GTE Building just west of Ybor City.

This will be Tampa’s fourth time hosting a Super Bowl, but the first time since the 9/11 attacks, which has added a whole extra layer of security for big events across the country, like the NFL Championship game.

Officials said the said the security plan has been two years in the making.
