O.co Coliseum Will Feature Airport-Style Metal Detectors In Time For Monday's Game

O.co Coliseum will be the first U.S. stadium to have permanent airport-style metal detectors at every entrance by the start of Monday night's Cowboys-Raiders preseason game. AEG was recently awarded the stadium management contract for the municipally owned facility. “One of the first decisions AEG made as the new stadium manager was to install walk-through magnetometers for every entry point,” said Raiders Chief Exec Amy Trask. “We are absolutely delighted that AEG has done this. It's an investment in and for our fans.” The NFL last fall purchased 3,100 wand-style Garrett metal detectors and distributed 100 to each NFL stadium, said NFL Dir of Strategic Security Ray Di Nunzio. He said that the league plans to monitor the process of the walk-through magnetometers.
