New Hanover County Schools Alerted to "Swatting" Call by New Hanover County Sheriff's Office

The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office has reported information to New Hanover County Schools regarding a vague threat that has been investigated and deemed to be false and unsubstantiated. The threat, which is known as a form of “swatting,” refers to a call that provides false information about a place or person in an attempt to get law enforcement to respond to the intended address. The threat did not mention a specific school. School Resource Officers and principals checked their buildings this morning out of an abundance of caution. NHCS will continue to work with the Sheriff’s Office to ensure safety to all of our buildings and students.
