City Police Memo Details Off-Duty Gun Ban At Ravens Stadium
Updated: Monday, December 9 2013, 05:55 PM EST
An internal memo obtained by FOX45 details a policy that will bar off-duty officers from bringing their service weapons to Ravens Stadium in Baltimore.
The internal memo, also known as a general order, was distributed to city officers on December 3 and outlines the policy, set by the NFL. The rule applies to not only M&T Bank Stadium, but to all NFL facilities and stadiums.
The ban is an exception to a policy that otherwise requires Baltimore city police officers to carry their service weapons in the city while off-duty.
The memo reminds officers to secure firearms "appropriately" before entering a stadium, noting that "the trunk of a vehicle is not considered a secure location for a weapon."
