Suspicious calls no threat to schools: Eaton County Sheriff's Office

The Eaton County Sheriff's Office assisted Grand Ledge and Bellevue police Thursday after two local businesses received suspicious calls that were perceived as threats against schools, according to a sheriff’s news release.

“It was quickly discovered the calls came from outside of Eaton County, and that there was absolutely no danger to any of our local schools or students,” a sheriff's representative said.

 

Several schools initiated a “shelter in place” as a precaution for a short time.  A “shelter in place” is simply a heightened level of security to the exterior of the building, while classroom instruction continues.  No schools went into “lockdown,” where all activities stop within the school, the release said.

 

“Any calls of this nature are taken very seriously, and the sheriff’s office commends the pro-active approach to safety that our local schools take,” the official said.
