DENVER - The Pepsi Center announced on Tuesday the installation of Walk-through metal detectors at all venue entrances.
The metal detectors will be installed before the first Colorado Avalanche pre-season game on Sept. 18.
The Pepsi Center will be the first professional venue in Colorado to install the metal detectors as a permanent security installation.
Everyone attending an event at the venue must pass through the metal detectors.
The center says goal of the new process is to further improve safety and speed up the security checks.
The installation of metal detectors are becoming more common at stadiums and other venues across the country.
