      Police find alleged threat at middle school not credible

      Springfield police and school administration began an investigation into an alleged threat that supposedly involved Agnes Stewart Middle School, according to a police report. As with any threat involving a student or local school, according to the report, SPD immediately identified the source and contacted witnesses. In this case, it was quickly determined that the alleged threat was not credible, and there was no threat to school staff or students. The report stated, the Springfield Police Department has an excellent working relationship with school staff and administration. Along with Springfield Public Schools, the Springfield Police Department has a procedure in effect for dealing with threats made toward local schools. Although this incident was not criminal in nature, SPD became aware that information was being disseminated among various social media entities indicating otherwise. Because of this misinformation, the report stated, there was an increased presence of Springfield police officers around Agnes Stewart and other Springfield schools. The intent of increasing patrols was solely to put students, parents and staff at ease. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Springfield Police Department at 541-726-3714.
