Since the horrific Parkland, Florida shootings which occurred on February 14, 2018, Nassau County has experienced a large influx of threats of violence to schools. I would like to assure all Nassau County residents, school personnel and students that all threats received by the Police Department are taken seriously until they are deemed unfounded or non-credible. Numerous investigative resources are expended during these investigations and false threats will never be tolerated. If an individual is found to be in violation of the law for making a school threat, the individual will be charged with “ Making a Terroristic Threat” which is an D Felony punishable up to seven years in prison.
Law Enforcement has identified the source of a Snap Chat Post that caused alarm to multiple school districts today and is currently under investigation.
