Meadowlands stadium honored for security

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) MetLife Stadium, site of last February's Super Bowl, has been recognized for its achievements in security.

The home of the New York Jets and Giants was presented with the 2014 Facility of Merit for Safety and Security Award by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security at The University of Southern Mississippi. The NFL nominated the stadium, which also received the award in 2011.

MetLife Stadium President and CEO Brad Mayne says Tuesday, ''We're honored to be recognized by the sports industry and the NFL for the accomplishments by our security team in creating a safe, comfortable and secure environment for our guests.''
