Bag Search

The safety of our guests and performers is the Arena’s highest priority.  We employ a variety of security measures,  some of which are not as visible to the public, including an advanced weapons detection system. Visitors will move quickly through security checkpoints at a seamless pace, knowing they’re well-protected everywhere inside the venue.

The Evolv weapons detection system combines powerful sensor technology with proven artificial intelligence (AI), security ecosystem integrations, and comprehensive venue analytics to ensure safer, more accurate threat detection
