Thunder Bay Police continue to investigate threats to Hammarskjold High School. Police received anonymous information on six separate occasions this year specifically targeting the school. In each case, school administration and the public were notified of the threats.
The threats ranged from planned shootings, to possible explosives. The information provided required police to quickly respond to the school to ensure public safety. Each response included extensive searches of the building.
In each instance, no evidence was found in the building or grounds relative to the threats. The outcomes of these searches were shared with school officials who then took action regarding the status of the school as they deemed appropriate.
The investigation as to the source of these threats has been challenging given that they are anonymous. A tip line has been setup and the Thunder Bay Police encourage anyone with information on these incidents to come forward and assist investigators. The tip line number is 684-5001.
Threats to students and staff at our schools are taken very seriously and require a thorough response by police. These ongoing incidents require a large number of resources
