Duke Venue Takes Top Safety and Security Honor

Duke University’s Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium will receive NCS4’s top honor for the venue’s excellence in safety and security.

According to a press release, NCS4 has recognized 10 facilities with the award, which commends facilities for leadership in addressing safety and security issues. Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium is one of three NCAA football facilities to receive the award. The other two NCAA facilities are Vaught Hemingway Stadium (Ole Miss) and Ryan Field (Northwestern).

“The Facility of Merit Award is to allow professional leagues, NCAA member institutions and marathon and endurance organizations to honor outstanding facilities that have gone above and beyond for their sports safety and security,” said NCS4 Director Dr. Lou Marciani, in a statement. “These contributions involve enhancing safety and security at their venue beyond what is normally required, and setting an example for other facilities to follow.”

Duke representatives will formally accept the award at the National Sports Safety and Security Conference and Exhibition on July 11-13 in Orlando, Fla.
