The New York City Police Department says it's ready for Super Bowl XLVIII.

With the highly anticipated match-up only weeks away, security preparations have included working with security officials in New Orleans -- the site of last year's event and conducting "what if" exercises.

So far, officials say they have not received any credible threats of terrorism.

"The majority of activity pre-game will be here in New York. And so we will be certainly staying very aware and mindful of any potential terrorism threats, which we're not aware of at this time. As well as just the normal activities that go on around Super Bowl," said Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.

The Super Bowl will be played at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium on February 2.
