Police: Threats at Rockford Public Schools not credible

ROCKFORD, Mich. (WOOD) — Local and federal police agencies continue to investigate several bomb threats over the past several months at Rockford Public Schools.

Authorities believe the threats are not credible and the students and community are safe, according to a news release from the Kent County Sheriff’s Department. However, they would not provide any more details on the investigation.

Police said harassment, in the form of continuous bomb threats, is becoming more frequent throughout the United States and other countries; however, none of the threats have been credible.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department is working closely with the FBI, Michigan State Police, Rockford Department of Public Safety, Rockford School Security, and other outside agencies to investigate this harassment.

If the threats continue, police said they will not comment on each one of them but are working to solve the matter.
