UI Ends Vehicle Checks At Carver-Hawkeye Arena

Following the federal government's decision to lower its terror threat level back to yellow, or "elevated," the University of Iowa will no longer conduct vehicle checks at parking lots adjacent to Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Charles Green, UI assistant vice president and director of public safety, said the public was extremely cooperative with additional security measures during the recent Orange Alert. He said UI police officers would resume normal patrol procedures.
