NO CREDIBLE THREAT DISCOVERED AFTER SCHOOL BOMB THREAT IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY

Cumberland County Director of Schools William Stepp released the following statement after a bomb threat was left on the school systems Facebook page:

“This evening there were online threats made that did not identify a specific school. Multiple agencies in conjunction with my team, investigated the incident and determined the threats originated from one out-of-state juvenile.

This out-of-state juvenile used a profile picture of a current CCS student who was in no way involved with the threatening statements.

It has been out of an abundance of caution that these agencies have thoroughly  investigated and deemed this threat to be non-credible.

Law enforcement have notified out-of-state agencies of the juvenile’s threats for appropriate law enforcement action.

Cumberland County Schools would like to thank the public for their posts of concern, reporting of the threats, and immediate response to this situation.

Cumberland County Schools would also like to thank Homeland Security, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department, and the Crossville Police Department for their diligent investigation in getting to the source of this threat.

Even though it is deemed not a credible threat, building principal’s and school resource officers have been notified and extra security measures are being implemented.

As always, safety is our number 1 priority.”
