DENVER (AP) - The managers of the Pepsi Center in Denver are installing permanent metal detectors to boost security at major sports and entertainment events.
Kroenke Sports & Entertainment says all patrons entering the multipurpose arena will be required to undergo a security check beginning later this month.
The facility is home to the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche, and often serves as a concert venue.
Company president Jim Martin says the permanent magnetometers will improve safety and increase efficiency.
During the 2012-13 pro basketball season, the league required all patrons to go through bag checks and get checked with hand-held metal detectors.
