School Threats

Belleville, ON - On the 27th of November, 2018 at 2:30 p.m., officers were called to a City of Belleville high school for an unruly student. During the initial contact with the student, the student yelled out some threats in frustration. The student was taken to the office, was calmed down, and the situation was resolved. At some point other students may have heard the interaction with the student and the officer. The result was that a social media post capturing a small part of the incident was posted on social media and went viral. This incident was thoroughly investigated by police at the time of the call, and then further investigated after school hours. Police have determined that there was no threat to the school or the students.
