While more than one billion people tuned in to watch the ball drop at Times Square on New Year’s eve, a massive counterterrorism operation  was underway.
CBS News went behind the scenes to see how the FBI keeps the city safe during one of the busiest nights of the year.
“It’s a nice target – a lot of media, a lot of cameras – to expose the world to whatever some insane person has got planned. It’s a target,” said Randall Derouin of the FBI.
A SWAT team was position in an underground garage. More than 100 FBI agents helped with security. And a bomb squad was on hand.
