INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Wednesday the Indianapolis Colts re-announced an NFL policy that limits the style and size of bags that can be brought into Lucas Oil Stadium.
The measure was implemented to enhance public safety and make it easier for fans to get into all NFL stadiums, beginning with pre-season games.
The following bags are acceptable:
-Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12" x 6" x 12"
-One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar)
-Small clutch bags or purses, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap, may be carried into the stadium along with one of the clear bag options.
There will be an exception for medically necessary items after proper inspection at the northwest and southeast corners of the stadium. Every member of a family will be able to carry in approved bags.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is encouraging people to be familiar with the new policy. Those who forget they can't bring bags into the stadium will need to take it back to their car, making their vehicle and property a target for theft, police say.
