Suspicious Incident

On January 29, 2018 at 9:46 p.m., the Lincolnwood Police Department was advised of a potential threat to the Lincolnwood School District 74 campus that appears to have originated and circulated on social media. It was determined that misinformation was being spread via social media as a result of a dispute between two users which did not involve the schools.  Nothing occurred and the Police Department is making a concerted effort to reassure the public that this is a spurious report with no factual basis. In spite of the lack of any reliability to these assertions, the Lincolnwood Police Department is maintaining increased visibility at all school locations by conducting frequent patrols and community contacts in the area.
