A total of 15 metal detectors will be used at gates 23-28 on the south side at Tiger Stadium this year as part of a pilot program, LSU announced Wednesday. Per

LSU plans is to have full-stadium coverage in place by 2019, a year ahead of the SEC requirement of full stadium coverage. This year, LSU will have 15 metal detectors in use at gates 23-28 on the south side of Tiger Stadium for every home game.

“Providing a safe environment along with creating a great fan experience is what we are striving for,” LSU Associate Athletic Director for Communications Michael Bonnette said. “This year's pilot program using 15 metal detectors gives us an opportunity to educate our fans on what the process will be like when entering Tiger Stadium in the future. This process is similar to what every other school in our league is doing.

“Our goal is to have a metal detector plan in place at Tiger Stadium in 2019, to provide full coverage and be in line with other SEC schools.”

New for 2018: Metal Detectors

The 15 metal detectors will be located on the south side of Tiger Stadium at Gates 23-28. Fans entering the stadium through Gates 23-28 will be instructed by Event Staff Members on the metal detector process which is as follows:

Step 1: Bag inspection
Step 2: Remove cell phones, cameras and any other large metal objects
(Note: shoes, belts, keys, jewelry or small metal objects don't have to be removed)
Step 3: Walk through metal detector
Step 4: Retrieve items that were removed prior to entering metal detector
Step 5: Get Ticket Scanned

Those fans with medical issues should notify security prior to going through the metal detectors where they will then be directed to the Medical Item Inspection Gates located at Gate 10 and the southwest corner of Tiger Stadium.

Fans should be aware that any items deemed as a weapon (pocket knives, multi-tools, etc.) will be confiscated at the gates will not be returned. Those items should remain in their vehicles or left at home. For complete listing of prohibited items in Tiger Stadium, click here.

Wow...another misguided notion that will encourage even more fans to stay home. Imagine how long the wait to get into the stadium will be with airport-like inspections!!!
