Lambeau to debut metal detectors this weekendSubmitted: 08/28/2015
GREEN BAY - Some football fans heading into Lambeau Field Saturday for the Green Bay Packers first preseason home game this year will encounter newly installed metal detectors.


Ticketholders using the Shopko gate will be the first to use the walk-through metal detectors. The NFL has mandated their use at all stadium gates by 2016. The Packers will install the detectors at all remaining gates next season.

They're a little different than the screening machines at airports.  Fans won't have to remove jackets, belts, keys, wallets, watches or other objects of similar size. But, they will be asked to temporarily place cell phones, cameras, tablets and other larger metal objects in a tray near the machine
