security is the top priority, bob. >> level one according to the department of homeland security, sam and laura. a classification that the dhs reserve for big events like the super bowl. areas and places where it it could be a terrorist threat even though there is no known credible threats against sunday's game. more than 60 agencies from the local, state and federal level will be involved and have been involved. law enforcement won't say how many additional officers and agents will be deployed for sunday's game. only it is in the thousands. yesterday 30 bomb sniffing teams from the east coast and up and down the west coast were briefed that valley transportation authority on how to help secure the south bay largest mass transit system. just one reason how they're upping security. the department of homeland security is relying more on their so-called behavioral detection officers.
6:03 am
>> that's interesting. that's interesting. that doesn't work very well for someone like me that can just sweat like on the moment. >> when it it comes to the airport, that's fine. because the more secure we are. the better. i am no one to be suspicious of. it's fine. >> the local emergency operation center has activated. right now they're at a level one. by sunday they'll raise their degree of readiness to level three. reporting live here outside levi stadium in santa clara, bob redell, "today in the bay." let's bring in stephanie chuang live inside the nfl experience. while the game is in the south bay, the party has been in san francisco. >> yeah, absolutely, laura. party with players and with this man who woke up very early this morning just to join us. this is charles. official nfl super bowl for 16 you're celebrating your sweet
6:04 am
16. you're working on a special bay area design. tell me, charles, why does the nfl go to you to be the official artist? >> perhaps i bring something different than just hats and shirts and so forth that are sold with the logo. it brings a new group of people, my artwork is shown in art galleries all over the country and it possibly appeals to people who are not exactly football fans. maybe we can convert them. >> very good. good mission, thank you, charles. he is doing a fan signing event here today with rashad jennings who played a year with the raiders and now is with the new york giants. more events, you guys, means more crowds as we head into the weekend. b.a.r.t. busiest day and help with this weekend's crowds expect to be even larger. b.a.r.t. will up security and the number of trains to meet demand adding service to and from sfo and oakland international airport to service the busiest travel days like it

6:33 am
can nine teams. we're talking about bomb sniffing togs arrived for a briefing on how to secure the south bay's largest mass transit system, which will be ferrying fans to and from sunday's game. for security reasons, no agency will confirm the exact number of additional officers and agents that will be in the region this week. at the bay area airports and the department of homeland security is increasing its use of behavioral detection officers. their agent is to look for the smallest instance in someone's mannerisms to determine if they pose a threat. the local emergency operation center has also been activated. right now at a level one, but on sunday they'll elevate them selves to a level three. reporting live here in santa clara, bob redell, "today in the bay." 6:33. super bowl fireworks by no means limited to the field. another firewalk show planned at super bowl city. the smoke is still to clear in
