Local police oversee security with the assistance of 150 cameras scattered throughout the inside of the stadium and another 30 that shoot a perimeter around it. The newest cameras are 10 high-quality PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) devices stationed high on the lighting towers.

The Rose Bowl is also using social media to better enhance stadium security and traffic on event days. A dedicated staff member in the Unified Command Center monitors all the major social-media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram), searching for any issues in pedestrian flow or traffic management. It gives stadium personnel the chance to act quickly in response.

“You can get instant resolve today,” says Cunningham. “It used to be, we’d hear about something that happened and then we’d meet up and fix it for the next event.”

Thirty people were stationed inside the Unified Command Center during the night of the BCS Championship Game, and nearly all were trained on ISS 24/7, a Web-based incident management system. Each department has its own login, which allows users to access the information and calls or requests relevant to them. For example, cleaning services has a login and is informed only of cleaning calls. The system also provides a detailed list of all incidents reported inside the stadium on a game day.
