The Branford Police Department and Branford Schools issued a joint press release in response to an incident yesterday at Branford High School. Rumors and accounts from students often included alleged threats made by a person who entered the school; police are simply calling the matter a "trespassing complaint" and state no threats were made.
The full release:
Branford police detectives worked in coordination with School District officials yesterday to investigate a trespassing complaint of a juvenile (not a Branford student) at Branford High School. During the incident, no threats were made toward any individual, group of students or staff.
The Branford Public School District is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment, and to that end, Superintendent of Schools Hamlet M. Hernandez and Police Chief Kevin Halloran both reiterated, “Potential threats concerning the safety of students or schools, are taken seriously and if necessary, proper measures are implemented.”
