As she wraps up her first week of work for NFL, the league's new Vice President of Security Cathy Lanier will attend today's Vikings-Panthers game in Carolina to represent the league and get her first taste of life as a non-law enforcement official. Lanier left her job as the Washington D.C. Police Chief last week, joined the NFL this past week, and one of her first issues was how the NFL would handle the tumultuous situation in Carolina, outside the stadium where the Panthers play. Lanier will be going through all the security meetings and protocols as she is broken into her new job, a week after she turned in her badge in Washington DC. There's not a more fitting and appropriate place for the NFL's new VP of Security to be than Carolina, site of protests this past week, but Lanier is there, and she will be joined by the NFL's COO Tod Leiweke as well. But it should be known that the NFL is more concerned about the security inside stadiums and outside the stadium, it defers to government entities to handle the protests and keep the peace.
