Super Bowl 50 isn't just the biggest sports event of the year - it's also one of the largest security events.

Everywhere you turn in the San Francisco Bay area Sunday for the big game, you will find a massive security presence, from the water to land, and even in the air, reports CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller.

The Air and Marine branch of Customs and Border Protection is one of more than 50 law enforcement and government agencies working together to keep Super Bowl 50 secure.

"We're here enforcing the temporary flight restrictions," said John Priddy of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. "We have the capability that we can put eyes on anyone within the 30 nautical-mile radius in a pretty short amount of time."

Their video cameras are powerful enough to clearly see the faces of anyone in the vicinity of Levi's stadium.
