Police Enforce School Dress Code At Football Games
(2008-09-05)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Fans can no longer wear whatever they want to Montgomery public school football games.

Police are enforcing school dress codes by barring spectators who aren't dressed appropriately from entering the Cramton Bowl.

Police say enforcing the dress code at athletic events helps eliminate fights and gang activity. The dress code bans oversized clothing, flip flops, short skirts and low-cut blouses.

It also prohibits insignia and clothing that promotes illegal activities and violence.

Montgomery Police and school officials say they plan to notify opposing teams they will play of the new policy.

School spokeswoman Mona Davis says the school system wants football games to be family oriented and not have distractions prohibited during school hours.
