The Packers clarified the NFL’s new public safety policy and how it will be applied at Lambeau Field to a media gathering on Friday.
Director of Security Doug Collins and Director of Public Affairs Aaron Popkey explained in detail the policy regarding both carry-in bags and seat cushions. Here are the highlights:
–Bags to carry items into the stadium must now be transparent and can be no larger than 12 inches by 12 inches by 6 inches, which is roughly the same size limit that has been in place in the past.
–One gallon Ziploc bags and hand-size clutch purses are also permitted to carry in items.
–Anything larger than a clutch purse must be transparent.
–The lists of prohibited items and allowed items within the permissible bags have not changed.
–Portable seats or seat backs are still allowed, as long as they’re of solid construction with no concealable areas and have no arms.
–Single-piece seat pads made of various materials, including styrofoam, are also still allowed.
–Seat cushions with zippered covers or zip pockets or other concealable flaps are not allowed.
As a follow-up, a walk-through demonstration of a person entering Lambeau Field under the new public safety policy will be conducted and videotaped next month.
