Lambeau Field to Use Security 'Wands' This Weekend
The National Football League is pushing for enhanced security, and starting with Sunday's Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, all fans will be subject to a hand-held, metal-detecting wand test before being admitted.
The procedure would be similar to wand inspections at the airport, but this process would be less invasive than the full-body exam, said Doug Collins, Packers director of security.
"We think it's a more thorough process, without having the hands-on in particular. We understand there has been some negativity out there from what the (Transportation Security Administration) has done. … This just eliminates that process," Collins said. "Pretty much the whole body will be scanned with the hand wand."
The Packers previously performed upper torso pat-downs at the security gates.
