GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--Crews at the Alerus Center are beefing up security ahead of this week's Democratic NPL Convention.

Hundreds of people are expected in Grand Forks this weekend to see former Vice President Joe Biden speak.

Alerus officials say you will have to go through metal detectors, and weapons of any kind are not allowed.

Purses or bags you want to bring in will also have to be no larger than eight and a half by five and a half inches.

Grand Forks Police will also be sending back up to the location in hopes of adding an extra set of eyes on the event.

"We'll get you through as quick as we can. Come early and travel light are the two recommendations that we make,” said General Manager, Anna Rosburg.
