Kingston Police “working with international partners” in school SWATing incidents
Kingston Police are continuing to investigate the threats made to several local schools on December 5 and 6, 2018. The threats, which appeared to have been made specifically to elicit significant police responses by way of what are colloquially known as SWATing calls, have been found to be unsubstantiated and no actual danger existed at any of the schools involved. However, police say the threats caused a significant impact on school operations, students, staff and police.
Kingston Police say they are continuing to work with International law enforcement partners to investigate the person(s) responsible for these incidents. Kingston Police ask the public to be assured they will respond accordingly to any information obtained that concerns the safety of the schools, students and staff members.
