The LaPorte Police Department recently received information on a threat towards Handley School. The LaPorte Police Department takes all threats towards the public serious so we have been actively investigating the claim. They have been able to determine that the original threat is from over a month ago and does not appear that anyone is actively trying to carry out this threat nor has the means to do so. The LaPorte City Police along with school resources officers from the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department and the LaPorte Community School Cooperation have been in contact and are taking steps to make sure that everyone in the school is safe. The LaPorte Police Department is looking into the claims and will notify the public if they have reason to believe that anyone is in danger.
