JAMESTOWN – The Post-Journal is reporting that extra patrols have been added to Jamestown High School after a reported threat made last week resurfaced.
A post was reportedly made on social media Friday regarding an alleged threat to the school. Jamestown Police Chief Harry Snellings said the post was “investigated and handled,” but couldn’t comment further because the investigation involved someone underage.
The chief said rumors of the threat resurfaced on social media Tuesday night, prompting the addition of extra patrols at the high school.
The Jamestown Police department already has a regular presence at JHS through its school resource officer program and zoned patrols.
Jamestown High School principal Mike McElrath on Wednesday confirmed there was an unsubstantiated threat made last week to the high school, but added there was no credible threat to Jamestown High School on Wednesday and the school was never put into a lock-down.
