Security policy affects bags carried into NFR arena

In order to enhance public safety and make venue access more efficient at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, Las Vegas Events announced that it will implement a new security policy regulating the size and type of bags that may be carried into the Thomas & Mack Center. The clear-bag policy will be in effect Thursday through Dec. 16.

“Following the NFL’s lead, along with other professional and collegiate programs, we believe it is prudent to implement the clear-bag policy,” LVE President Pat Christenson said. “Fan safety, security and enjoyment is a top priority for us. We believe this policy is an important enhancement to the security measures already put in place at the Thomas & Mack Center.”

Fans are encouraged not to bring any types of bags inside the Thomas & Mack Center. However, the following are permitted:

■ Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches.

■ One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar).

■ Small clutch bags, with or without a handle or strap, that do not exceed 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches (approximately the size of a hand).

Exceptions will be made for diaper bags and medically necessary items, after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.

Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag; briefcases; backpacks, cinch bags and fanny packs that are not clear and/or exceed the size restriction; luggage of any kind; computer bags/cases; camera bags/cases; binocular bags/cases or any bag larger than the permissible size.

Fans can carry items allowed into the arena, such as binoculars and small hand-held cameras, in a permissible clear bag. Fans can return non-permissible bags to their cars or check them in at check-in location at the Mendenhall Center lobby.
