What HPD & the DOE plan to do about school threats

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU -

In the wake of last week’s school shooting in Florida, the Department of Education and Honolulu Police addressed the recent number of threats made by students against local schools.

Since the beginning of the year, HPD says they’ve dealt with over a dozen threats to schools on Oahu.  None of those have been real, but some did result in arrests.

The Department of Education says these false threats are found predominantly across social media, and it’s something that’s become an issue across the country.

Police say every threat is taken seriously, and that they are taking measures to increase security for schools statewide.
