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.
