New York Jets: Changes to Security at MetLife Stadium

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets announced today security procedures will change at MetLife Stadium in an attempt to make the environment safer and less burdensome for fans. I am sure we will remind you as the season gets near, but here are the changes.

In a continuing effort to improve the fan experience and provide a safer environment for all guests, walk-through magnetometers have been installed at all gates at MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Jets and New York Football Giants.

The new security measure, a National Football League Best Practice implemented as of June 1, will remain in place for all upcoming Stadium events, including NFL preseason and regular season games.

Walk-through magnetometers, a more effective and less intrusive form of screening, will replace hand-held magnetometers as the primary screening device.

Guests will not need to remove their shoes, belts, coins, watches or jewelry, as required at airports.  Guests will have to place their cell phones, cameras, and keys on a security table prior to walking through the metal detector.  To help expedite the process, guests are advised to only bring items they will absolutely need for the event.

The MetLife Stadium Bag Policy, Code of Conduct, and Carry-In Policy remain the same.  Specifics can be found online at
