EAST LANSING (AP) – Michigan State University police say they’re increasing security for campus events, including a no-bag policy for all events at indoor athletic facilities.

They said Tuesday police also will have a more visible presence at high-profile events such as home football games.

The changes take effect with Friday’s men’s and women’s basketball Midnight Madness at the Breslin Center.

The no-bag policy means all bags such as purses, large bags, camera and binocular cases, and other similar bags, are prohibited at all events at indoor athletic facilities, including the Breslin Center and Munn Ice Arena. The policy affects not only athletic events but also concerts and special events.

The East Lansing and university police departments announced Oct. 6 they were investigating general threats made against sporting events at the university.
