We have been made aware that social media platforms nationally are being used to post threats to school safety and create school disruption. For example, Tik Tok Challenges and the resharing of threatening posts. These posts are investigated and reported to local law enforcement agencies, including the Delaware State Police. Multiple agencies have found no evidence to lend any credibility to them. Delaware State Police have issued a statement about these posts:
Numerous posts and/or images have been shared nationwide which have affected various schools across the country. The threats reported to Delaware law enforcement agencies have been investigated and deemed non-credible. At this time, the Delaware State Police has no intelligence indicating any credible threat to Delaware schools. Be cognizant that the absence of intelligence does not mean the absence of a threat. Please call 9-1-1 or call the Delaware Anti-Terrorism Tip Line at 1-800-FORCE-1-2 (1-800-367-2312) to report any suspicious activity. You may also email information to email@example.com.
As you know, school safety is our first priority. We will continue to take each and every threat seriously and our school safety specialists, administrators, and law enforcement will investigate and follow up. Additionally, anyone found responsible will be held accountable. Thank you for your understanding, support, and patience this week. https://dsp.delaware.gov/2021/12/10/delaware-state-police-issue-statement-on-social-media-threats-at-schools/
