BOSTON (AP) -- Boston officials are urging fans to behave responsibly as the New England Patriots play the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.

Police say they expect to have more than 2,000 officers on the streets of Boston by the game's halftime Sunday. Police will focus on areas near college campuses and sports bars where previous sports celebrations have turned wild.

City officials said they will step up patrols and video monitoring near Kenmore Square and North Station, areas where fans congregate. Access to those areas will be restricted after the third quarter to discourage large crowds near bars and restaurants.

Police Commissioner Edward Davis warned the city's large population of college students that surveillance cameras will record any criminal behavior. Those images will be used to lodge criminal complaints.
