Another Written Threat Discovered in Restroom at School

The Hawai`i Police Department is investigating another written threat discovered on a school restroom stall door.

Authorities report that the threat was found on Monday afternoon and was investigated by the assigned School Resource Officer and school authorities.

“Both the police and the school are taking measures to protect the children, and an added presence of police will be at the school,” HPD said in a Monday evening release.

Police are asking for anyone with information to call Officer Anson Caceres of the Community Policing Section at 961-8849.

Both Waiakea and Hilo Intermediate Schools have a uniformed School Resource Officer assigned to each school that is responsible for assisting the school with issues when they arise, in addition to instructing DARE Classes for students.
