Livermore High student arrested for allegedly threatening harm; police presence up on campus

Superintendent Bowers commends students who reported incident that led to arrest

A Livermore High School student was arrested this week for making "an alarming statement to other students, threatening to cause harm on our LHS campus," according to Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District Superintendent Kelly Bowers.

Bowers sent a statement to staff and parents early Thursday, notifying them of the incident. She said that the exchange between the unnamed student and their peers was immediately reported to the school administration, Livermore Police Department and the district office in order for an investigation to be conducted, while a threat assessment protocol was activated.

"Thanks to the thorough and swift response of the investigating officers who worked throughout the night, an arrest has been made," Bowers said in the statement. "The individual who made the remarks remains in custody and we are confident that any possible threat has been neutralized."

As of Thursday afternoon, the student remained in custody, according to LPD officials. However, they said they could not comment further as the case is an ongoing investigation involving a juvenile.

While school and other activities proceeded Thursday uninterrupted, Bowers said there would be an increased presence of police and district office administrators on campus as a precautionary measure.
