[ARCHIVED] Potential Violence in Local Schools

DATE/ TIME:10-13-06/ 1300 hours
INCIDENT: Information
LOCATION: Local Schools
CONTACT: Captain M. I. Williams
PHONE#: 229-3500

Early on Friday, 10/13/06, the Burlington Police Department received anonymous information of potential violence at one or more of our local schools. Thus far, that information is unsubstantiated, and no such incidents have occurred at any of our schools.

As a precaution the Burlington Police Department is working closely with the Alamance Burlington School System to prevent any such incidents and to ensure the safety of all students and staff. Additional officers have been stationed at the affected schools, and investigators from the Burlington Police Department and the Alamance County Sheriffs’ Department are working together to determine the origin of the information.

We want to assure everyone that the law enforcement agencies in Alamance County are working very hard with the Alamance Burlington School System to keep our schools, students and staff safe, and to ensure that learning is not disrupted.
