Public Safety Notification
Earlier today the Lemont Police Department responded to an enumerated threat originating from messages that were communicated via social media. The investigation was coordinated with officials from Lemont-Bromberek 113A School District.
Through the investigation, it was revealed that there were two separate and independent social media accounts from which the messages originated. Both account owners have been identified and will be subject to discipline by School District 113A and possibly charged criminally pending further investigation.
The Lemont Police Department believes there is no further threat to area residents and students. Like many similar events occurring nationally, it is believed that these events are hoaxes; however, the Lemont Police Department and School District 113A takes all threats seriously and thoroughly investigates each incident.
As always, please report any known threats to the Lemont Police Department.
Chief Marc Maton, Lemont Police Department
Dr. Courtney Orzel, Superintendent
