LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Officials say they plan to implement more security measures at the KFC Yum Center in Louisville next month.

Media cited a statement Tuesday from the center that said the arena will put in walk-through metal detectors at entrances and limit the size of purses. The statement said the arena will open 90 minutes before most events and encourages patrons to arrive early for the additional security screening. Backpacks and briefcases remain prohibited.

KFC Yum Center General Manager Dennis Petrullo says the additional measures will help provide a safe and secure atmosphere at the arena.

The new security measures will take effect on Jan. 14.
