[ARCHIVED] School Threat-12/17/21

Old Westbury Police Department is aware of information that another social media thread is circulating throughout New York State.  Each post contains similar language referencing that school shootings and/or bombings will occur everywhere on Friday, 12/17/21.  Thus far, all incidents that have been investigated have been deemed unsubstantiated.  Social media platform Tiktok is being primarily used to disseminate the posts, however, other platforms may be utilized as well.  The language may vary among different posts, but the messages are all referencing 12/17/21.  There is no indication that this threat has any connection to the Village of Old Westbury or even Nassau County.  The Old Westbury Police Department will be monitoring the latest intelligence on both the state and local level and will share relevant information here on our Village app.
