While the head of the FBI in New Jersey says he is confident in the two-plus years of preparation law enforcement agencies have put into securing this year’s super bowl, Homeland Security officials still worry most about a lone actor or “homegrown” extremist attempting a small scale attack.

“[We are] very interested in insuring that we have attention placed towards any homegrown violent extremists that are in the area or live in the area,” said Aaron Ford, special agent in charge for the FBI’s Newark office, in a statement with ABC news.

The FBI has said its primary role is to thwart a terrorist event such as an active shooter, bomber, or biological, chemical, or radiological threat. According to Ford, the agency will oversee a joint-operations center at an undisclosed location.

“The Joint Operation Center has teams of intelligence analysts from federal, state, and local agencies, gathering and analyzing the latest intelligence in order to quickly identify and mitigate any possible terrorist threats,” said Ford during a briefing at MetLife stadium.
