MSU Police say Spartan Stadium will be secure despite worker shortage

EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Many places are experiencing a shortage of staff, especially restaurants and bars.

But the shortage can also be felt at Spartan Stadium.

It is going to be full of thousands of people in just a few weeks, and in order to make sure everything is safe they need staff. Especially security.

But right now, the company that provides security is still trying to find help – with the start of the season less than two weeks away. DK Security recently took out an ad on Facebook looking for people to hire, starting with the home opener against Youngstown State on September 11th.

Whether or not the company is able to find the people it needs, Inspector Chris Rozman said the MSU Police Department will fill the need for security on game days.

Rozman says officers from several neighboring departments will be coming in to assist.

“We invite many of our local and state law enforcement to come help us on game day, and this is something that we have always done and something that we will continue to do this year as well. So you will not just see MSU and public safety, but other law enforcement agencies. Not only in the stadium but on campus helping us achieve our mission,” he said.

Just a reminder if you go inside the stadiums and sit in the seats to watch a game you are not required to wear a mask, but if you go into a bathroom or a suite, you need to wear one.
