COLUMBUS (Jen French/Ken Hines) -- OSU police officers are getting some outside help to increase security for President Obama's appearance during the school's graduation ceremony.
The president will deliver the commencement address Sunday at Ohio Stadium, where attendees will be subjected to increased security measures in the wake of April's Boston Marathon bombings.
Participants and guests are asked to arrive at the stadium by 7:30 a.m. Those arriving later will be allowed to enter, as long as they are seated by 11:30 a.m.
Once inside, attendees will not be permitted to leave the stadium until the ceremony's conclusion.
Passage through metal detectors will be required at the event. Liquids, signs, and noisemakers are prohibited.
City, county, state, and federal agencies are assisting OSU police with security operations.
