Local School Threats

December 6, 2021 12:04 PM

This morning, December 6, 2021, Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) investigated two separate and unrelated threat incidents reported at both St Monica’s High School and Santa Monica High School.

During the course of their investigation of the St. Monica’s incident, our officers determined the threating message originated and was aimed at Elk Grove High School, a school in Northern California. A report was taken.

At about 8:00 am, SMPD officers responded to Santa Monica High School regarding a student that made a threatening post on a private Snapchat page sometime last night. The post was seen by other students who informed their parents, who in turn notified school officials. The student was detained and questioned by school authorities and police personnel. The student’s personal property, vehicle and residence was searched by police yielding no weapons nor other criminal related items. The student has been removed from school and released to the custody of his parents. A report was taken for further investigation.

Out of an abundance of caution, SMPD has increased patrols in the surrounding areas of both campuses and will maintain in close contact with school staff. We encourage our community to continue to always See something, Say Something by calling us at 9-1-1 or 310-458-8491 for non-emergency dispatch.
