FARGO, N.D. — The Fargodome is upgrading its security with walk-through metal detectors.

KFGO radio reports the equipment has been installed and staff members are undergoing training.

General Manager Rob Sobolik says dome officials are finalizing guidelines and protocol on what is and isn’t allowed to be brought in to the venue.

Sobolik says the detectors might get a test run during Monster Jam this coming weekend and the Avenged Sevenfold concert the following weekend.?

The $150,000 cost is being paid through the Fargodome’s surplus fund that’s used for capital improvements.
