Sunday will be a big day for Baltimore Ravens fans, as their team faces the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans.

In anticipation of heavier and rowdier crowds, Baltimore police are bringing in extra uniformed officers, undercover officers, camera monitors, and administrative staff to keep the city safe on Super Bowl Sunday.

Additional officers will be deployed, in particular, in the prime bar neighborhoods of Canton, Fells Point and Federal Hill. Others will be at the watch center at headquarters, where they monitor feeds from stationary and helicopter cameras.

Some officers, along with those in other jurisdictions, will be on the lookout for drunken drivers.

A police spokesman says there were no notable disturbances following the Baltimore Ravens' victory in the AFC title game.
