UPDATE: Pulaski Police Conclude No Pulaski Schools Threatened
UPDATE: 4:15 p.m.
Pulaski, VA - Investigators from the Pulaski Police Department and Pulaski County Sheriff's Office have concluded there was no substantiated threat to any Pulaski County School.
According to Pulaski Police Department Captain Anthony C. Meredith, the alleged threat had been passed along by over ten people after a conversation took place by a Town of Pulaski resident in the work place.
The person had watched last week's news coverage of Giles County Schools being closed due to an on-line article that linked the shootings in Connecticut and Colorado to Narrows and was concerned for her and her relative's children safety.
Pulaski County School Superintendent Thomas Brewster advised all Pulaski County Schools will be under normal operations tomorrow.
"Any information that may jeopardize the safety of our school children, faculty, and staff are always taken seriously, and we continue to encourage students and citizens to report potential threats or concerns," a statement from Pulaski Police stated.
Pulaski, VA – The Pulaski Police Department was notified at 9:08 a.m. Tuesday that a school in the Town of Pulaski had been put on lock-down due to an alleged threat.
The Pulaski Police Department and the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office are investigating the allegations with the assistance of the Radford City Police Department.
Pulaski County Schools are following their security protocols and law enforcement officials are currently present in all County schools pending further information.
