TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Tampa police will use mobile cameras purchased for the 2012 Republican National Convention to monitor crowds attending a One Direction concert.

The popular band’s concert is scheduled for Friday night at Raymond James Stadium. Officials expect heavy crowds and traffic.

According to a news release from police, officers will maintain a social media presence to easily communicate with concertgoers.

The band, which was formed on the U.K.’s version of “The X Factor” in 2010, has a feverish fan base.
