Admission Policy / Prohibited Items at LJVM Coliseum

In order to provide for the public good order and the continued safety of the patrons and guests of the Lawrence Joel Veteran's Memorial Coliseum, and given the trends in public assembly gatherings and overall event management, the following admission policy will be utilized for Complex events.

Coliseum event staff will advise all patrons and guests seeking entry to the particular event that all parcels, packages, large pocket books, tote bags, containers, bundles, knapsacks, back-packs, umbrellas, coolers, bags, cartons, paper sacks, duffel bags, briefcases, portfolio cases, binocular cases, camera equipment cases, and any other type of extraneous device(s) which could be used for carrying or concealing items will not be allowed to be brought into the Coliseum. Patrons with prohibited items will be allowed to return such items to their vehicle but will not be able to leave such items outside the facility doors. Any such items left outside will be immediately discarded by the facility.

The only exceptions for entry will be small purses, and then it must, in fact, be a purse and not some other substitute device serving the function of a woman's purse. Baby travel bags will also be an exception provided a baby accompanies them. No other substitute purse devices may be brought into the Coliseum unless approved by Coliseum Management.

All guests and items are subject to a consent inspection upon entering the facility. This consent inspection may involve metal detectors. All small purses and baby bags will be subject to consent inspection, without exception.
