Bengals Fans Asked To Arrive Early For Security Checks


Football fans in Cincinnati are being asked to arrive early for the Bengals game against Houston as the NFL has increased security at stadiums around the country.

Law enforcement leaders in Cincinnati have also made a few changes in their security plan for Monday night's game in the wake of the Paris attacks.

The city says there aren't any active threats in the Cincinnati area.

A regional operations center where local authorities will coordinate security efforts will stay open at least through the game.

The Bengals say there will be extra staff at Paul Brown Stadium to help fans get through security. But a team spokesman says getting to the game early will help fans get through the lines.
