KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Police Department is preparing for Sunday's big game against Tennessee, and according to Chief Rick Smith, you can expect to see increased police patrols.

The additional officers will not only be keeping the peace at Arrowhead, but at all of Kansas City's entertainment districts, like Power & Light and down in the Crossroads.

Sgt. Jake Becchina with KCPD said it's all in an effort to keep the streets safe on Sunday. 

"We know a large amount of people will be out at those entertainment districts, watching and enjoying the game," Becchina said. "We want them to have a safe experience, both coming and going, and while they are there."

While all eyes on are on the big game Sunday, whispers about the possibility of a Super Bowl victory parade are starting to be traded at City Hall. Mayor Quinton Lucas is warning we shouldn't put the cart before the horse.

"None of us have an interest in jinixing anything, all we want to do is let folks know that we are ready for any incident."

The Chiefs take on the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead on Sunday at 2:05 p.m.
