KINGSTON, Jamaica — The police are advising people who will be attending the Inter-Secondary School Sports Association (ISSA) Boys' and Girls' Championships, which will be held at the National Stadium from Tuesday, March 26 to Saturday, March 30, that there will be several restrictions.

They include: no firearms, knives, ice picks, machetes, aerosol sprays, large coolers (igloos), glass bottles, lighters, frozen water or drinks, drugs, fire crackers, DVD or video recorders, alcohol and umbrellas with pointed tips will be allowed inside the venue.

Additionally, no smoking will be allowed inside and persons found in breach may be asked to leave the stadium. Walkways should also be kept clear at all times in cases of emergency and there will be a no re-entry policy, the police said in a statement from its Corporate Communications Unit.

Licensed firearm holders are being advised to make alternative arrangements for the safekeeping of their firearms, as no provisions will be made at the venue or at the Stadium Police Station.

Patrons are also being reminded that all individuals entering the stadium will be subject to search. Meanwhile, vendors are being warned that vending will not be tolerated outside the designated areas.
