SALT LAKE CITY — The FBI launched a campaign Wednesday to educate people on the consequences of posting hoax threats to schools and other public places.
The FBI and other agencies follow up on every tip they receive from the public, and analyze and investigate all threats to determine their credibility, according to federal authorities. Federal, state and local police use a range of measures to mitigate credible threats.
Federal law enforcement asks that people continue to report any potential threats or suspicious activity to local police by calling 911 or contacting the FBI at tips.fbi.gov or over the phone at 1-800-225-5324.
Hoax threats targeting schools and other public places are not a joke. They have devastating consequences for both public safety and for those who issue the threats. #ThinkBeforeYouPost: https://t.co/RTQxotorsApic.twitter.com/rPjiVHPr88— FBI Salt Lake City (@FBISaltLakeCity) May 23, 2018
