The BMO Harris Bank Center has a few policy changes you should know about, that are taking effect now.

If you're planning on attending an Ice Hogs game, a concert, or another event at the BMO Harris Bank Center in Rockford then you need to be aware of the recent policy change regarding personal items you are able to bring into the venue.. There is a new clear bag policy. You can find the new info at wifr.com

Basically, what it boils down to is that you can no longer bring backpacks or large purses into the venue.This rule was put into effect for public safety reasons. You are able to bring a small purse or clutch into events, and for additional items a 12 x 12 clear plastic bag. You are still able to bring in diaper bags, or bags that hold medical supplies. You are also still able to bring in loose items such as cameras or binoculars, Although this change in policy may be an inconvenience, I give the organization a thumbs up for making safety such a huge priority. Nobody will ever complain that it too safe.
