Dickson police investigating threat made toward schools

Posted: Updated:

Some schools in Dickson County were on high alert on Wednesday because of a threat.

Steve Sorrells, director of student services, said police are assessing some concerning statements that were made earlier in the week.

The situation only affected city schools and not the entire county.

The school district was informed about the situation by the police department.

Officials called for a modified lockdown, meaning that activities continued normally inside, but all visitors had to go through the office and students were not allowed outside.

Sorrells said there is no indication that the threat will be acted upon and that this was a precautionary measure.

Around noon, the school district said the situation had been resolved and that everything was back to normal.
