ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta police are reminding the public that no drones are allowed around sites hosting events related to the Super Bowl.

Police spokesman Carlos Campos said in an email Sunday that there would be a zero-tolerance policy for drones flying in areas that include Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Georgia World Congress Center, State Farm Arena, Centennial Olympic Park and the Fox Theatre.

Campos said hundreds of local, state and federal law enforcement officers will be watching for illegal drone use in the prohibited areas.

Anyone who violates the no-drone rules may be subject to criminal penalties.
