TULSA – A local entertainment and sports venue in Tulsa is planning to amp up security measures for 2016.

The BOK Center says it will add walk-through metal detectors for every entrance as well as update size restrictions on all bags brought into the building.

Restrictions on bags: “Bags no larger than 13” x 15” x 6’’ will be permitted inside BOK Center. Guests who have bags larger than this size will be asked to return them to their vehicles or discard them. This is in addition to the existing policy that all bags, purses or personal items of any size are subject to search. An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection. BOK Center is unable to store over-sized or prohibited items.”
