Illinois’ law enforcement community is sounding a strong message that threats against students or faculty won’t be tolerated. Any person making such a threat to harm students or faculty at a school can expect the strict enforcement of the law.
Threats are not a laughing matter. The Illinois State’s Attorneys Association, Illinois Sheriff’s Association and Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police say all such threats are taken very seriously. They say investigating such threats diverts precious resources.
The law enforcement community of Illinois issued a statement Wednesday that it stands united in making schools safe.
Several school threats have been investigated in recent weeks.
