HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A local organization will be watching with great interest how security is handled at Super Bowl XLVIII, because it played a significant role in training many of those who will be protecting the fans in the stands on Sunday.

Although it did not conduct training for this particular game, the University of Southern Mississippi's National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and security (NCS4) did oversee different types of training in past years for the security staff at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

"Some of our risk management courses, our incident management training, our evacuation training...we've worked with MetLife on our sport-evac simulation modeling, we did two exercises in New Jersey," said Dr. Lou Marciani, director of NCS4. "We really, early on, had a great impact on the progress towards safety and security for the Super Bowl," he said.

From Jan. 28-30, NCS4 hosted a first-ever national summit on intercollegiate safety and security.
