No “Active” Threat to BCTHS, Police Presence Requested for School Tuesday

A heavy police presence is expected to be on hand at Bucks County Technical High School (BCTHS) as a precautionary measure after an an alleged “threat” report made against the school was deemed unfounded late Monday night.

Administrative Director Dr. Leon Poeske, alerted students, parents, and staff on the schools digital media pages that officials received a concern about a comment that was overheard about someone shooting up the school, in a posting  at 8:30 pm.

Poeske followed up one-hour later with an updated post that read:
” As of 9:30 pm, we have very few details regarding the report but we will work throughout the evening/night to gather as much information as possible. Out of an abundance of caution, we have already requested that Bristol Township Police be present on our campus tomorrow.”
At 11 pm he posted a copy of a letter sent to students, parents, staff and the surrounding community saying “police  believe there is no active threat made towards BCTHS.
The threat investigation comes on the heels of a week of reported and alleged threats throughout Lower Bucks County school districts, beginning in Bristol Borough last week where three students in total have been criminally charged for in separate incidents
Bensalem and Bristol Township (Harry S. Truman High School) school districts informed students and families of alleged threat investigations that took place over the weekend with releases from both. In both instances, the reports were deemed non-credible.
Bensalem Police were on hand at the high school Monday to provide a proactive presence, officials said.
“The number one priority for BCTHS is to make sure its students and staff are safe” Poeske said.
We will take quick and prudent actions to make sure everyone who attends and works at BCTHS is safe” he said.
