Re: Community Crime Bulletin -- Non-credible online threat

The UC Santa Cruz Police Department received information of an online posting indicating a threat to an unknown "Santa Cruz area school."  Working with the Santa Cruz Police Department, FBI, and other regional law enforcement agencies we have conducted an investigation and determined that the threat was not credible.

In addition to the information we received, several community members also alerted us to the posting. We encourage this type of community involvement and the immediate reporting of suspicious activity and persons.  We take all threats seriously and fully investigate them to the extent possible. 

Please report all in-progress crimes by calling 911 from any landline or cell phone. Reports may also be made by utilizing one of the several "blue light," emergency or elevator phones located throughout the campus.
