Meridian Centre beefing up security

CKTB-News- Metal Detectors

There will be a new feature at the Meridian Centre tonight for the Rock the Rink skating event.

Attendees will be the first to pass through new metal detectors.

In the past, the Meridian Centre has used staff with wands to scan concert goers, but now there will be portable detectors instead which should help speed up lines.

The detectors won't be used during IceDogs games, the OHL has yet to make them mandatory.
