MSU Pilot Program to Test Stadium Safety Measures

Posted:

The kickoff to the college football season is just days away and one of the most important issues for university officials is stadium safety.

MSP is one of a handful of schools across the country making sure you're safe at the game.

The US Department of Homeland Security says stadium attacks are 1 of the 12 most devastating possible acts of terrorism.

With millions of people going to sporting events every year, the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) has partnered with eVerifile.

The pilot program will create a risk management standard for major collegiate and professional venues with the hopes of improving and increasing safety and security.

They'll test several initiatives, including employee and vendor background screening, safety education and venue access through credentialing.

MSU is 1 of only 5 universities nation wide participating in the pilot; The other universities are Ohio State, Penn State, Texas A&M and Southern Mississippi.
