*****  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  *****

Incident:   Threats to Dunwoody Schools
Date:   December 13, 2018

On December 13, 2018, several schools within the city of Dunwoody and DeKalb County received bomb threats prompting evacuations and lockdowns out of an abundance of caution. Dunwoody Police officers along with DeKalb County School Police responded to the schools.

These threats appear to be related to the threats made to Dunwoody/DeKalb County schools several weeks ago. Currently, DeKalb County School Police and federal agencies are investigating. We take these threats very serious and the safety of children is our top priority. These continuous threats appear to be "Swatting” incidents and we are confident that there is no credible threat to the safety of students, school staff or members of the community.

If anyone has any information regarding these threats, please contact DeKalb County Schools Police.
